You know when you look at the clouds in the sky and suddenly one takes on the shape of something you put a name to? Well this cloud ROARED at me. The contrast fade is not photoshopped (although the image certainly is), and was caught in-camera as part of the polarizing process (from the filter). Tell me if this shape reminds you of something different.
