Mushroom Cloud Over Beijing

Last week, an enormous mushroom cloud formed in the sky over Beijing, China and sparked fears that a cataclysmic, Armageddon-like event was underway. There was no such event underway though. Photographers and videographers captured images of last week Thursday’s ominous-looking formation which gradually took the shape of an explosion from an atomic bomb. According to the National Center for Atmospheric Research (in the USA) a giant cumulonimbus cloud (like the one that appeared over Beijing) is a thunderstorm cloud that forms from a towering cumulus and it resembles the head of a cauliflower. This photo of the cloud (which was posted on the Telegraph’s website) has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 20th of June 2012.

Yesterday a photo featuring Mount Fuji (in Japan) was the Daily Cool Photo, feel free to check it out. Watch this space for daily updates on this blog in the Photography and Babescategory.
