    We had some pretty turbulent thunderstorms pass through Toronto last night after dinner. A tornado or two even touched down. After the storm passed, the sky turned totally orange. It was amazing and unreal. Then, as the sun set, the sky did all sorts of funky stuff. I managed to take a bunch of photos leaning out my second floor window. Not much post processing on them. Let me know what you think.

    3 tornadoes touched down in the GTA.. we were on Tornado watch here... got some pretty violent winds, rains and thunder.. but, we survived!

    Unfortunatly it was dark here by the time the storm came through, so I didn't get to see the cool skies.

    really interesting though.. The weather network was showing some places with a really weird GREEN sky.. its amazing what storms can do.

    I'm located just east of the Beaches in east Toronto. It wasn't as bad here, and we were rewarded with some awesome skies afterward. I hear the west and north ends got it much worse.

    The telephone pole/wire totally kills it for me. The skies are beautiful, however. Whenever I see an opportunity like this, I usually grab my gear and go to one of a few locations I have already scouted. For a sunset, scout out a location that faces West without any obstructions and just keep it in mind until you need it. Do the same for a sunrise, just make sure it faces East this time.

    Thanks. I could PS out those lines, but it's not like I'm doing anything with the photos.

    Good point about scouting sunset/sunrise locations. I'm going to write that down. West for sunsets, east for sunrises, right? I think I got it now.
    ;)

    the sky looks so mean in the 2nd picture.

    luckily no damage in my area.
    btw, i tried to catch the rainbow (since i'm such a fairynice guy ... kidding) but couldn't really capture it.

    Thanks choudhrysaab and Missdaisy.

    choudhrysaab: If you do catch a rainbow, don't worry it's nothing a little anti-biotics won't clear up.

    :D
