I tried to capture the Maelstrom at the center of the atomic tests in the Pacific in 1946.  Its sheer power was overwhelming: even as the mushroom cloud at the top was starting to collapse, the center column was still rising … though starting to fall around the outside edges. Awesomely beautiful and horrible at the same time.
