Lenticular cloud, Russia. Captured just at the right moment, when the sun is directly striking the bottom of the cloud and light is refracted through the top of the cloud. It gives an amazing two-tone effect. 'I just learned that this is a hydrogen bomb building a mushroom cloud. Destruction has its short moments of beauty too..'
