The Extraordinary Challenge

Challenge #7 in the variable subjects II series. Hosted by Lext123.
Challenge has finished
Unfortunately, the change of being disqualified with no good reason is fairly big in this challenge. Only the best of the best is good enough. So if you dare, submit an extraordinary picture and we’ll see what happens, OK? During the submission period at the end of every day, I will cut down the content to contain only the best of the best. Be aware that I will probably DQ a lot of the entries with no justifiable motivation. Then again: that’s the extraordinary thing about this challenge, and please realize: the winner of this one is truly one of the greatest! (This is the last challenge in the "The Extraordinary" series.)

Here is a my brief story about this weather event: "Who could think that an ordinary morning walk from Bol to Murvica, two small villages on island of Brach, Croatia, would be so exciting! It was August 4, 2006 and the waterspout appeared between islands of Hvar and Brach, just in front of Murvica beach. It was fascinating: She was there in front of me and my friend, connecting the sea and the cloud. All around us was calm, windless and we just heard the loud crickets sizzle and waterspout fizzle sound! She was coming closer and closer in full strength and beauty, swinging in the waist. We stood there, taking pictures, and finally when lightning start to stroke all around, we start to run to shelter in a small chapel at the nearby graveyard. Suddenly umbilical connection between sea and sky split up and She disappeared! At the same moment, the heavy rain started, so swelter and humid that we can hardly breath climbing up to the village."
