Mushroom Clouds Over Marietta

While I was walking on Thursday afternoon, I saw this unusual cloud formation to the northwest; the size and shape really looked like the archetypal mushroom cloud depicted in so many apocalyptic films (although without the associated heat, wind, devastation, and radiation, of course). Shot with an LG Fusic FX550, which ain't the best camera (or camera-phone) out there, but at least you can still tell what it is. (And when you think about the qualify of a camera like this compared to the pocket instamatic cameras I often used back in the 1970s and their small, grainy, soft-focused images, it's amazing how much our equipment has improved over the years...)
