Very dramatic "right time, right place" capture, Sylvia. You were also lucky to have the sailboat there because it makes the image much more compelling. Hat's off to you. Great win!

Thank you Kristy, Lonnie, Kirsten, Melinda, Mustafa, Renee, Linn, Stephen, Mike and Caj :o) Mike it was because of the boat that I discovered the waterspoud...I was so thrilled when I saw it and so lucky to find a place where to stop and catch it...then passed the entire afternoon spying for another one ...lolll

What a heck of a catch! Well done and congrats!

Great capture Sylvia ~ the white of the boat really stands out against that dramatic sky! Many congrats!
Monnie Ryan commented on October 03, 2008 19:18:
Wow -- that little boat looks so vulnerable with the funnel cloud looming. Glad everyone came through it OK. Great photo -- congratulations!
Patrice Cigallio Wesa commented on October 03, 2008 23:43:
Wow, Sylvia, what a stunning capture. Wonderful composition with the inclusion of the perfectly placed white sailboat too...so glad that no one was harmed. I would do a double take at seeing this scene and probably have such weak knees, I could not steady the camera. Big congrats on a sure winner anywhere!!!
Christine Czernin commented on October 04, 2008 01:59:
Congrats,Sylvia. How lucky to be there at the right moment and beeing able to stop there. How often do we miss a beautiful chance, because we can't stop. Drives me crazy sometimes. LOL
Robin-Lee Vieira commented on October 04, 2008 17:34:
Wow! This is an incredible catch!! not so sure I would have been brave enough to stick around to get the shot! Congrats on this outstanding POTD!!
Sylvia Rossler commented on October 04, 2008 17:39:
Thank you Keith, Susie, Monnie, Pat, Christine and Robin-Lee :o) Robin-Lee .. I was safe as it was far away and I had to punch the zoom to the maximum to get it that close :O)
