Hard to tell without additional pictures or video.... there is really no way to tell from a still picture. Having seen a funnel cloud up close, you'll know it when you see it because the rotation will be rapid. Where/when was this taken? If you upload it to our Photo Gallery, you might get some more comments.

Looks like a funnel cloud, but of course it's impossible to be sure without more pictures or video.

Than it would most likely was a funnel cloud. Was there a tornado warning for it? I've seen one in my life... our local newspaper had confirmed that I did see one.

I just did a blog about detecting funnel clouds and showed the ones that I have seen.

You can tell it's a funnel because from the left of the image it feeds into the actual funnel and on the right it just goes straight up. That's a misdirection in winds. Also you can see the clouds around the funnel wrapping counter-clockwise. Here's the diagram:

Yeah, unfortunately without a vid, you can't appreciate the rotation.

Nice shot.
