Elisabeth Brentano fearlessly posed in a wheat field, wearing a white billowy dress, as a funnel cloud loomed before her.

“The photo does look a bit scary,” she told Inside Edition.

She is not a professional model but actually a storm chaser. Fellow storm chaser Mike Mezeul helped her get the shot in Dodge City, Kansas, this past spring.

Brentano posted the spellbinding images on Instagram after she returned from her adventure.


“To get her safely in front of a tornado, is pretty hard to do,” he said.

The duo spent a week on the road driving around Kansas waiting for a tornado to strike. When they found it, they had to move quickly.

"From a storm chaser’s point of view, it was the perfect storm, because you got to observe Mother Nature doing her thing, without anybody ever being threatened," he said.

She added: “Being that close in the photo wasn't that scary to me. I couldn't really hear it yet, you couldn't really feel it. You could feel the wind blowing, but it was still very beautiful, almost serene.”
