Reminder, all: Fact-check your finds when it comes to amazing photos from Irene and elsewhere. A few weeks ago, a Baltimore-based meteorologist named Justin Berk posted this amazing photo from a Pensacola storm. Tonight, it’s making the rounds thanks to Lansing-based TV station WILX — except this time, it’s being claimed that the photo was taken over the Outer Banks, just before Irene hit. The photo seems just a little too perfect to be believable for a storm of that size, so it’s drawing questions. (They’ve since taken the photo down.) This, friends, is why you double-check these things. The thing that set off alarm bells for us? The fact that a TV station in Lansing, Michigan, broke this photo. Because, clearly, they would’ve gotten it first.

Interesting…but how do you track photos back to their original source? What’s the easiest way?
