Waterspouts captured on camera - Australia

Spectacular images of waterspouts off the coast of Yallingup have been captured as showers and thunderstorms move north along the coast.

Swings and Roundabouts winery's Paul Birch stopped to take photos of three waterspouts he spotted on the horizon in Injidup this morning.

Mr Birch said the waterspouts spiraled along the coastline from Wyadup to Yallingup.

"I was there for quite some time. I probably sat there for about 10 minutes," he said.

He said several onlookers gathered in their cars to witness the phenomenon until the waterspouts "fizzled out" upon meeting land.
