Striking images from the UK

An uncredited photographer for Getty Images captured an amazing shot following this morning’s explosion at a fuel depot in southeast England. See also a satellite image of the event. (I happened to be landing at Heathrow via a redeye flight & saw the enormous column of smoke off the right wingtip, luckily at a much greater distance.)
