Photo of the Day

July 7, 2017

Lucky Strike

Storm chaser and Your Shot photographer Vanessa Neufeld captured this scene in Keyes, Oklahoma. The day before she was to fly home, she and her fellow chasers "thought we'd go for one last chase and hope for something more than just a squall line," she remembers. "As the evening descended, so did a barrage of lightning in northwest Oklahoma. " This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
