Photographer's Note

Water spout over the Chesapeake Bay, off the coast of Virginia Beach, Virginia. This waterspout was photographed from just west of Lynnhaven Inlet, in the Ocean Park area of Virginia Beach. Lasting only one minute and twelve seconds, it dropped from the sky, increased in size as it reached downward toward the Chesapeake Bay, whipping huge swirls of water below the base. Fortunately it rose back into the sky before reaching the shore, as I really had no place to hide!

NOTE: I intentionally display photographs smaller than the normal size photos shown on Trek Earth. This is to discourage copyright violations.
