Cumulonimbus

Just a cumulonimbus thunderstorm cloud.That explains the lightning.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

As petera said, it's Cumulonimbus which is a storm cloud.

cumulonimbus.jpg


This image is a long exposure, probably taken with an ND800 neutral density filter to gain an exposure of several seconds to capture the lightning. Cumulonimbus clouds have areas of intense turbulence which is best characterised by tendrils of cloud at the edges that move about rapidly. This movement has been captured in the upper areas of the cloud and lead to a smooth almost wave like appearance of the cloud. The central region is almost stationary so you see more detail and again at the base of the cloud there is more movement visible.

It's a good set of images but frankly the cloud is not that spectacular compared to many. It's really just a case that few people pay attention to clouds these days.

I watched this cloud transform and shot 5 clips. Not nearly so violent (no lightning) but a beauty
