Nuclear Sunset

On May 25th, I left the house to meet up with a friend. When I turned east onto the main street out of my neighborhood, I was struck by this image in the sky. Given the state of unrest in the Middle East, and indeed here on our American soil, my first thought was 'is that a silent nuclear bomb that went off in Atlanta?' Thankfully, it was just the setting sun playing off an extremely majestic cumulous cloud. I pulled over by the Dart Bowl and snapped this shot. I saw others doing the same. Were they thinking what I was thinking? Hopefully the next mushroom cloud I see will be just that...a cloud. Pray for peace.
