While sunsets, storms and sunrises are all pretty spectacular, this morning (Saturday, May 13th) turned out to be one to remember! After embarking on his usual morning expedition, and setting up to capture a big storm rolling in - it was then he spotted a water spout around 1.5km out to sea.

A waterspout is a phenomenon that occurs over bodies of water (oceans or even lakes) where a rotating column of water is formed beneath cumulus or cumulonimbus clouds. Waterspouts are essentially tornadoes that form over water. They can range in size and intensity, with some being weak and short-lived, while others can be strong and last for several minutes.
