Last summer, while we were out on a lake for an afternoon of fishing from a pontoon boat, suddenly the sky darkened and the wind got up.
As we started making our way to shore, I spotted this wannabe waterspout across the small lake. It descended and ascended from the cloud, almost touching the water about 6 times before it finally pulled back up into the cloud completely.
All I had with me for a camera was my iPhone (series 7 at that time). Considering the camera, the low light, the distance, the movement of the boat on the choppy water, and my nervousness, I’d say this is a good shot. As we picked up speed to make a dash for shore, I had a chance for only one shot. This was a lucky one.
Don’t knock the weather. If it didn’t change once in a while, nine out of ten people couldn’t start a conversation.”
