Pileus Capping Overshoot

Pileus Capping Overshoot

This distant but splendid specimen of pileus formed atop an explosively convective, overshooting flanking tower for a heavy-precipitation (HP) supercell in nrtheastern Oklahoma. Soon afterward, the simple sunset in the dry slot would become an all-time favorite, along with nearby flanking towers crowned in alpenglow.
