NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – They may be scary, even dangerous when you are under a supercell thunderstorm, but seen from a distance they are quite a beautiful sight.

Over the last week in Texas, photographers had a field day, particularly near sunset when viewed to the east with the sun’s orange rays from the west reflecting off of the towering storms.
