Tropical Cumulonimbus

Tropical Cumulonimbus

Maritime-tropical cumulonimbus (Cb) over the Straits of Florida. Standing in 4 ft of water while fishing for mangrove snapper, I was awestruck as some low clouds (fractocumulus, cumulus) parted to reveal this gleaming sculpture in the sky. I whipped the camera out of a waterproof backpack and snapped this shot fast, for the sun would soon drop behind a deck of mid level clouds behind me.
