Tornadic supercell thunderstorm approaching a herd of wild horses. A supercell thunderstorm is a severe long-lived storm within which the wind speed and direction changes with height. This produces a strong rotating updraft of warm air, known as a mesocyclone, and a separate downdraft of cold air. Photographed in South Dakota, USA, on 26th June 2008.
