Natasha: "iReporter of the Month"

Congratulations to Natasha for winning the "iReporter of the Month" award by one of Edmonton's local radio stations, iNews880!

During our recent visit to Edmonton, we had a couple of thunderstorms hit where we were staying at my parent's house. One especially large one came in the early morning, and Natasha was up around 5:30am snapping photos of the incoming storm.

My parents told us that photos could be submitted to iNews880, which she did. Here are the photos!


The morning began a very bright shade of orange, with ominous clouds moving in from the south.


The photo that sealed the deal! This incredible photo captures a fraction of a second between a brightly lit morning with a rainbow, and a violent thunderstorm. The fact that these photos were taken with an iPhone 4 make them even more impressive.

Both of these images were featured on the news website and local TV stations on the morning it happened, and can be found on the iNews880 Thunderstorm Sunrise photo album.

The prize for being iReporter of the Month is a cheque for $880, and much deserved for her efforts in taking these photos! Congrats, Natasha!
