    That immediately makes me think of Apocalypse Now, and only secondarily of the huge pain and suffering of the people to whom this was subjected in Vietnam.
    I just have to call it how I see it.
    It is an amazing photo, but carries much more that the visual power, I think.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/renanluna] [http://www.flickr.com/photos/ross_m] Indeed!
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/joebrosnan] 'tis one of the highlights of the show.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/61520356@N07] It was indeed somewhat warm. The blast itself lasts for maybe 1 second, but the heat wave for a lot less than that.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/whiptail2011] Thanks!
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/apurdam] Indeed Andrew. One can only wonder at the type of person that would think a weapon such as this would be even remotely considered ok in the rules of war.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/strobezilla] Absolutely.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/ankewill] Aye, but a short lived one.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/teejaybee] Quite :)
