Beautiful and creepy indeed, better call in Mulder and Scully on that one!

I was initially expecting a close up mushroom (smurf home type thing!) ... thinking "this should be in the nature or close up forums..."

Then I saw your photo.. and it reminded me of a "mushroom cloud" photo I made in Sep 2005... at a staff retreat / camp!... (scary, is Romania testing its nuclear hardware in secret...?!) :?

and just "co-incidentally"... I happened to make THIS photo later that same week! (really, check the EXIF!)

Whoops... Tullio, I forgot to say (that should've been the first point!) that I love your photo! Great colours and eye is drawn naturally to your mushroom! Magic stuff.. (pun intended!)

Thanks John and PJ. I like your photo, PJ. I think if that cloud was a result of a "secret" nuclear test, you probably would not be contributing to this forum!

I guess you're right Tullio! Thankfully it was probably not a nuclear cloud after alll... otherwise I wouldn't have had the joy of the last few months!!

By the way, do you happen to know what that cloud / mushroom thing REALLY was in YOUR photo? (just a freak cloud formation, or factory emmission or what?)

Hi Paul, it was just a cloud formation. Because I shot with the lens at its widest angle, it appears to be much further than it actually was. Unfortunately, I did not zoom in (well, I tried but I got the camera shake so I did not take the picture).

Thanks for explaining Tullio! Clouds can produce wonderful formations!
