Here are the suggestions that I received to name Eliot’s photo. Thank you everyone. It was lovely of you to help. The Miami Herald ran the photo in today’s print edition. Your creative titles will help me pitch others.

Photo by Eliot Hess

We were just about to watch the tribute to Don Rickles on Spike TV that we DVR’d last night, when we thought we saw a tornado outside of our Miami condo window. It looked like a spiraling funnel.

Eliot ran for his camera. I wanted to run for the hills. We didn’t know what to expect. It may be difficult to identify in the photo above, but it looked like the formation was touching ground. Scary stuff.

After 15 minutes, it started to dissipate. Its 15 minutes of fame was exhilarating for us. The unknown made our hearts race and our imaginations run wild. Now looking at the photo, I see a woman.

I posted this on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I’m looking for a title for the photo in order to email it to online weather, travel, photo, environmental, and local Miami sites. If you think of something, let me know. Thank you.
