I have been a storm chaser most of my life.

Does that qualify? Who cares.
Loved the shot and was amazed at the way he sky above lit up.
Very minimally-edited shot.

Here is the straight out of camera shot, resized only. Shot with Tungsten WB, and is what gave the colors, no adjustments made in raw conversion or otherwise:

Wonderful colours in the sky, must be a very exciting occupation!

The orange / red of the ground area is a bit distracting and I wonder if a little desat might have worked well on that part of the shot.

Nice shot. Are these colors real or fanciful?

The band of clouds are mesmerizing. This shot would work well for the Purple challenge too.

brilliant colors - are they real or processed?

This would have benefitted from cropping the top of the image so that the majority of the sky is that fantastic purple.
