Photo Courtesy Chris Allington/National Geographic Your Shot A narrow but violent tornado crosses Interstate 40 in Oklahoma near the city of Shawnee about 150 yards from us. This is an HDR image composed of bracketed exposures shot in rapid succession. Shortly after this image we got in the car to put a safe distance between us and this tornado.

Photo Courtesy Pierre Lefebvre/National Geographic Your Shot Every day Mother Nature permits us to see through her the wonders of the world. Being a fisherman, I always wake up early in morning to admire what Mother Nature does best: present us with magical sceneries. She always presents me a different portrait of our lakefront (lake Morehead, Outaouais region). With this picture, I was awarded first prize in a contest at La d écouverte du Qu ébec, 2011. I wish to promote what Mother Nature does best through a photographer and fisherman's perspective.
