Wow, is that photo natural? It looks like a B&W and color in the same photo. Awesome shot.

This was taken on my Saturday ride on the recumbent. I was in Louisville KY, looking over the Ohio River.

It's at a remote B&B in Patagonia, I've never seen the type of cloud either, it looks like it spirals vertically like a twister, however it is just an illusion as it is horizontal! Here's where it was taken nice spot! http://maps.google.com/maps?q=-49.80...num=1&t=h&z=16

Thanks. It's natural, no editing and I took it with a point and shoot. It was a cloudy day in Princeville, Kauai and the sunset was actually not that great as far as sunset in Hawaii goes. I was fooling around with the settings and took a series of shots and surprise how it turned out.
