KANSAS CITY, Missouri - A picture of storm clouds rolling over downtown Kansas City goes viral. The photographer hopes to sell it for a good cause.
Scott Cook says he was eating lunch at his office at Bishop McCann in the Crossroads neighborhood when he noticed a striking image out of the window.
“I started seeing these clouds roll in from the west. I just dropped everything and grabbed my camera and shot up to the roof real quick,” said Cook.
He immediately uploaded the image and sent it to 15 coworkers.
“It was amazing. The clouds were like nothing I've ever seen before. Luckily I got a few shots before they passed over because they came pretty quick,” he said.
The picture went viral. The image was posted on My Report - Weather Photos & Videos on NBCActionNews.com and on Facebook by NBC Action News Anchor and Chief Meteorologist Gary Lezak. Someone even photo-shopped the picture to include an image of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
After Cook kept getting requests for copies he decided to sell the 8x10 photo for $15.
DeCloud Studios offered to print the pictures for free.
All of the proceeds will go to the Joplin Tornado Recovery.
