    Notice.........no wind around him! Two trees on right side are straight up and bush in middle same way. If a twister is that close, both of those items would be bent over quite a bit. I've taken enough photos the last 17 years to know (hopefully) a fake photo, aka "doctored" photo from a real one.

    I did read it was a real photo...but the tornado is a lot further away then it looks in the picture...that's why no wind.

    I've not encountered a twister, but would have thought it be windy all the same

    Ok, just read the article online about the photo. The wife ,that took it of her husband, said the tornado was much further away from him and their house than the photo shows. The tornado was also going away from them.

    Even with that statement, there is absolutely no wind showing at all around the husband. Would definitely seem unusual to a pro, or even amateur photographer.

    Not if you're not near it...it's not like a hurricane. It can go down a street and one side will be flattened but the other side untouched.

    With a tornado close enough to photograph, there would have to be some "straight-line" winds. Sometimes there is a "calm" before a tornado or even a bad t-storm, but that's not what this photo is showing. Even though the wife said the tornado was a ways off, the photo still looks too "calm" to me. Just my feelings.

    Read "Tornado myths" in Wikipedia. There's a section that talks about the myth of tornado's skipping one building and hitting another and so on. Tornado's missing something isn't what folks thinks it is.

    I thought the cloud formation that dropped is interested. I've seen a lot of funnels dropped out of clouds out on the plains country in West Texas. Happens occasionally when the dry line starts moving eastward. Don't remember seeing one where the picked up debra and the white made such a distinctive contrast line between the black and white. When I first saw the photo i thought it was fake but I rally don't know.
