Funnel cloud (I prefer funnel cake)

This is a funnel cloud across the street from my house from a storm this afternoon.  Note, it isn't a black and white picture!  It is a good example of ugly back-lighting.  The trees and everything else look completely black because of the strong light behind them.  I could probably have brought some of the color back if I had thought to adjust the settings (this was taken on full auto mode) but I was a bit freaked out. 

I've seen photos and videos that other people took of the storm, and they all showed some beautiful color, but they were taken from the back side of the storm, rather than looking into the brightness.
