Beautiful. Another example of how a true artist can transform even tragedy into great art.
where is your vantage point?
So creepy. Yet, you've captured it wonderfully.
I took this from the top of The Grove parking structure (8 floors high)in Hollywood.
If you had told me this is a mushroom cloud from a nuke attack, I might've believed it.Another good shot.
Good one. Unfortunately.
It looks like there was an explosion more than a fire.
This kind of cloud is called pyrocumulus. According to wikipedia, "Phenomena such as volcanic eruptions, forest fires, and occasionally industrial activities can induce formation of this cloud. The detonation of a nuclear weapon in the atmosphere will also produce a pyrocumulus in the form of a mushroom cloud which is made by the same mechanism."
Always happy to give a shout out to a fellow blogger! And congrats--saw this pic on LAist earlier today! :)
I think yours takes the cake, so to speak. It is a gorgeous thing. (Unfortunately, as Karin says.)
