Desert Cloudburst by Zefisheye Desert Cloudburst by Zefisheye
The cloudburst over the Namib desert looked like a nuclear explosion. I was in such a photo frenzy that I only noticed the red reflection of the desert sands on the clouds when I opened the image on my computer.

This is a meteorological phenomenon I've rarely seen: ground level being reflected on the bottom of the clouds. This is fantastic sight, and a fantastic shot. May I ask what lens was use to take this?

Wow. I really like this a TON. It does look like a nuc just went off...but I think the top part looks a lot like some kind of flower to, with the lower part being the pedestal. It's a very beautiful image.
