    Oh my, what is going on? (in hindsight, that's a silly question)

      Extreamly neat image. I normally do not get to see the inner core of these things in pics.

      I don't know how I ever missed this photo. One of the best waterspouts I have ever seen.

      The formation of waterspouts are usually defined by atmospheric dynamics related to vertical wind sheer, i.e. a column of water-laden air begins to rotate as it rises up to an attracting cloud overhead. Another theory with a growing body of experimental evidence relates the rotational dynamics of a spout to that of magnetic charge- i.e., that waterspouts, tornadoes, dust devils, steam devils, etc., are charge sheath vortexes- perhaps related to, or a relatively weak example of, Birkeland Currents or "magnetic ropes", that can form in high energy plasmas. At least that's one theory.

      Oh, and great photo!
