Mother Nature blesses us with some very strange occurrences at times. Yesterday, December 27, 2010 I happened to look out my living room window and spotted this strange sight. There was no wind to speak of, and the cloud was not rotating when I captured this so it makes you wonder if a small freak funnel wind, created by crossing breezes formed this beautiful funnel.
Taken at Okotoks, Alberta, Canada towards the Rocky Mountains (obscured by the lower clouds) and this is basically right from the camera.

I do hope you enjoy my work.
