Extreme weather rarely comes to Fife so unusual phenomena always capture interest.
On Sunday morning Alexander Grant was up making his breakfast at 6.30am when he saw a mini-tornado form in the sky over Kirkcaldy.
He said: “It’s straight up and down and started forming a spiral. It lasted for about five minutes before breaking up.”
Alexander, who is a keen amateur photographer, added: “I’ve seen a quite a few over the years and when I see them I like to take a picture.
”The one I took in 2009 went on for a good 10-15 minutes.”
