No, krt, it is not a tornado. The cloud, or the supercell, around a tornado looks a whole lot different. These are normal stratus clouds, not storm clouds, AKA nimbo cumulus, or nimbus clouds. =)
That is just cloud formations over a higher ground level, like a mountain or such, or uprising caused by an updraft.

Phil, that looks scary. Do you know if they have a safety harness? Cannot see it from this angle..
