A Fishing boat passes in front of a waterspout at sunrise in the Gulf of Mexico just off Anna Maria Island, Florida.

As I was taking pictures of the sunrise on Anna Maria Island, I happened to turn around to see this waterspout forming over the Gulf of Mexico. A fishing boat crossed in front of it. The early morning light reflecting off the large thunderhead onto the water created surreal colors.

This photo was taken with a Canon EOS Rebel T3i and a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens.
