Waterspout in Storm Cloud

Uploaded: April 17, 2008


I stood at the shoreline on Miami's South Beach early one Sunday morning and watched this waterspout (essentially a tornado over water) form under an ominous storm cloud.

Well, that's something we would never see in Colorado, a tornado over water. Very interesting, and I like your composition, very much based on the rule of thirds. #903317
