Remarkable photo. You are correct, it does look like the mountain exploded.

What an incredible shot of Half Dome in Yosemite. I had the pleasure of being out there but it was way before digital cameras. Hopefully I'll get a chance to get back out there with my Nikon D90 ! Beautiful work !

Not really ;) but another photographer and I both thought the cloud made it look like Half Dome was erupting. This by the way is the same cloud that is blue gray in my "Half Dome at Dusk photo but taken a little before this one.
Best viewed with black background :)
There were three of us at first waiting on Sentinel Bridge for the show to begin but it was getting late and it didn't look like anything was going to happen. Infact one guy did leave (he missed literally a golden opportunity :). We were almost giving up ourselves and then we noticed the hint of color on the cloud and it didn't take very long to turn bright orange. In fact we were both so enthralled in taking pictures of it we almost missed the show behind us in the meadow where the sun was actually going down. That is where I got my Meadow sunset shots.
