An imaginative capture, Peter, of a rather rare cloud formation. Lovely colouring! Thanks.
A marvellous photo which certainly takes my admiration in really strong measure. It is superlative – and I mean just that.
In colour the photo would be very good indeed but I like the way you have elected to use monochrome. It adds testament to the austere bleak starkness and overall sense of desolation and emptiness of the whole scene. The heavy growling storm clouds above, accompanied by the oh so fortunate bolt / dagger lightning only adds to the sense of serious loneliness and abandonment.
I take BIG, BIG fancy to this photo. It innately appeals to me. If I were the author of the photo I would be immensely pleased with it.
Thanks for a memorable shot.
I wish I had a view like this from my living room! I’ve nothing remotely like this – just boring old car parks and rather old cars..
Thanks, Barbara, for the sharing of a very privileged view from your living room. You must surely get a great deal of pleasure witnessing the clouds etc. Envy! Envy! Hahh!
Thanks for this beautiful photo, Giampiero. This is my favourite cloud of all clouds.
The inclusion of the houses in the landscape gives good measure of just how big the cloud is.
Super Image Giampiero well composed
I can see five faces / figureheads in the lightning bolts here. Spot them! It is a bit of fun!
Beautiful and imaginative composition, Maria.
I echo Adolfo’s comment which says it all. Very unusual cloud depiction.
Thanks, Maria, for the sharing.
An interesting shot, Peter. Thanks. I’ve yet to see such a thing! I keep hoping one day I will….
I like the inclusion of blokes and gals in the lower right side of the photo which lends good scaling to the overall size of the water spout above.

I don’t think this is a contrail
The cloud collectors guide says a contrail is the condensation of water in the exhaust from a jet engine.
The cloud in this excellent photograph is the result of a decreased air pressure caused by the Phantom.
It’s a Condensation Cloud not a Contrail
A correction to your aircraft observation, Sir. The aircraft depicted is the Eurofighter Typhoon, not the McDonnell Douglas F4 Phantom aircraft. The latter entered UK service in 1969 and was used employed in the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm and latterly, the RAF. It was withdrawn from active service in the late 1990’s.
