Hurricanes is one of my biggest fears, it's like an obsession for me, even if I don't live in a exposed country. But this picture is really nicely composed Barbara, well done :)

So glad you pulled this out of the arhcives, Barb. I love it! You have a bit of everything here...a storm cloud (than almost looks funnel-like), a bird (is that an Egret?), and the ocean spraying up above the rocks. Great scene!!

As Claudia says, you have swept so much into this one shot while all eyes are on the storm !

Being a midwesterner, my first thought was that looks like a tornado! Nice shot!

Spectacular picture!! It must be a little scary to see this storm approaching... Could that be the sort of storm that ends up into a Tornado?

Looks like a wall cloud which could very well produce a tornado. Nice capture.

@Steve Carey: Thank you for commenting. I waited to see if it would develop into anything but it didn't.
