It looks like a miniature tornado. Nicely captured.
That storm sounds scary. Hopefully everybody who ought to evacuate actually will and things will turn out okay. I'll keep the situation in my prayers.

I love your image and the explanation Brigitte but you must stay safe my Ozzy friend. We don't get those awful weather conditions in the UK - fingers crossed - the storms we do get are bad enough.

What a superb capture, Brigitte! I will buy a swimming pool to try to make such a beautiful photo, lol!
I wish for the inhabitants that this cyclone will be not too bad!

Great capture, Brigitte . . . . but, be sure to take all the necessary precautions. And, be sure to keep us up-to-date on you and Debbie!!!

A Chakra in our pool ? and there I was thinking it was a worm-hole into another dimension ...like, at the bottom of the pool and underwater kind of dimension...LOL
Super find and watery capture...and I think "Debbie" is way too far away to effect us at all, just like that other Debbie we know (private LOL)...but ya just never know...fingers crossed that it doesn't go pear-shaped and head south !

What a fascinating photograph! It's a wonderful abstract composition, and the little funnel sucks my attention right in! :)

Wonderful concept and perfect image.
Looks like you may disappear into oblivion if your not careful Brigitte.
Oh we are welcoming our Spring after a few cold months Brrr.
Hydrating is very necessary indeed, lucky you to be soooo hot.
We are still wearing winter wear-- Ha ha.
Ok so much for us-- you picture is totally awesome Brigitte.
The colors and lighting are perfect.
Great imagination, well done.
Happy dipping ! !

What a wonderful find. At first i thought it was something you had done in 2D. When I realized it was a photo I thought the shadow looked like a large sea creature. I love the color and how the column of the vortex shimmers. Top notch.

A special idea again from you Brigitte. Fortunately I meanwhile know, that stupid Debbie is gone. What a stress it must have been for all in your area. For everyone who has to cleaning up, much strength with everything Debbie has left. And a cargo hugs too.

lol, your son. You have a debbie in your life who you'd like to avoid? We all have people like that...One of the things that makes your art 'yours' is that you take common sights and you find a powerful design in them, and then present them as a bold statement. This is just a common water funnel, from a drain (and yes, it's going the 'other way' compared to the northern hemisphere---thanks to Jock for pointing that out). Yet you have a way with light, angle, hues, crops, whatever's required, of making it into a big bold statement. A Presence. On top of the clarity of the funnel, the hues are so strongly defined. And you cropped it so the funnel-entry is at the top, after which we have a lonnnnnng descent down to get to the bottom: You make this a 'descent'. And the bottom has those little bulges, like it's the start of another journey. (And you have long lines---probably light lines---in the same direction as the tall shadow---which emphasize the descent as well. A really fine Brigitte shot, and I like what you wrote too. This could be a depiction of the chakra path---we enter at the surface and funnel down; and the chain keeps going along. Love this upload.
