[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
it was shot with 28-105 lens. I mean it was really close. Taking in account the size of our boat... we did have a reason to be scared..)
Here, on the picture, tornado has already reached the surface, picked some water, and is taking it up to pour it back the next moment as a heavy salty rain.

complimenti bella foto al momento giusto

Hi Olga. Your photo is really dramatic. I would be terrifed to be on the ocean and see a tornado or water spout. In any case you captured it nicely. The darkness of the clouds really adds to the drama. Janice

stunning you've capture here, nice vertical frame, you are lucky to watch this natural phenomen, good work, thanks for sharing, I like this kind of photo,
bravo Martin

Hello Olga,

What a moment!


Hi Olga

Great shot of the water spout. I am not surprised you were scared. :-)

Boy, you can say that again, Olga!! Too close for me. Just what were you doing out there? Great exposure on this photo.

Thanks for sharing such a dramatic image!

Evelynn : )

Hi Olga, this is a beautiful documentary shot !..

Thanks for sharing us... Best wishes... Cengiz.

Very amazing photo! And Yes, I would have been scared too...especially out on a boat. You can't run.
Thank you for sharing this with us.

Very close and very clearly photographed. The greys are complemented by a touch of pink, making such turbulent skies seem even more dangerous. Well done.
