Cumulonimbus

On biggest sign of enormous power of sun on Earth is a Cumulonimbus. It is a formation of cloud going very high, with a typical shape.

I is made by steam elevated from the surface above by heated air. As the air levels up with a lot of humidity in it and meets colder air, the water just simply cannot be kept in the air. But the upcoming air foow is so high speed and amount that these water drops cannot fall down, elevated more and more higher.

It is a really amazing thing you can see. I saw it today and it was amazing how big it is. The other island (La Gomera) is about 35 kilometers away but the top boarder of this cloud is almost above me.
