Cumulonimbus capillatus . The cloud displays large vertical development. Lightning activity indicates freezing level was reached in the upper part of the cloud, therefore it is a cumulonimbus. The top is not sharp, but fuzzy (fibrous), hence capillatus. No anvil shape is developed. Photo: Sandro Puncet.
