Oil Rig Escapes Destruction

How often does some objective stand in our way, denying us our wish? Would it utterly destroy us not to get our way? Not to have a say? Or can things change, turning quickly, allowing us more room to play.

A third shift worker at this Texas oil rig wanted a night time photo of it. He figured the lightening would make a great backlight for his shot; look at what he got!

Suddenly the sky was ‘pitch-black’ again; he could no longer tell where the tornado was. Somehow in the darkness the tornado had turned; rig and worker were safe.


  1. We are all of us in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars.


  2. Love this pic.

  3. LR: I wish the name of the photographer had been included on the weather site. I liked it too.

  4. is this for real?! if it is., what an amazing shot!!!!

  5. 'gate valves' Hi, and yes it is a real photo placed on the 'weather photo of the day' site. I really wish the person had registered thei name with it. Then again, it might have come under coyright, and I couldn't have used it!!
    Thank for swinging by!
