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.
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 It was withdrawn from active service in the late 1990’s.

Excellent shot, Bruce. Well captured! It must have been quite something to observe in real life!
This shot of yours, Jeanette, finds my liking very much. It is quietly lovely. Nice muted colours, good composition and I like the way the foreground is highlighted by low level light offsetting the sombre stormy clouds above.
Thanks for the sharing.
Well said, Laurence. Nature is such an exquisite artist. We’re lucky, Jeanette, that you collaborated with her in this painting for us.
Yes indeed. Thank you very much.

A very powerful and evocative shot, as ever, from you, Paul.
This is cloud drama – big fashion! The huge cloud in the centre certainly takes dramatic centre stage in no uncertain manner.
Taken in monochrome this photo exhibits true black and white rather than the all too often overall grey-ish insipid tones that pretend to be monochrome. That is what lends power and gravitas to this excellent photograph.
