Nuclear by cbrodie Nuclear by cbrodie
A nuclear explosion I think looks cool.... even though setting off nukes isn't.

Edited a little.... obviously not true colour.

I'm not even sure why I know this, but this one's actually Ivy King. It was the second test in Operation Ivy, undertaken in case the Teller-Ulam...thing (you can't really properly call it a bomb) set up on Elugelab for the Mike shot didn't go off. King was actually a deployable oralloy fission bomb with a 100 kt yield.

I used the same explosion in a conceptual piece a couple years ago. It's in my deviations somewhere... but this is great.

Awesome photo manipulation, nothing on this planet has more power than a nuclear weapon.

Good photomanip of Operation Ivy. =D

This explosion was called "King". It was droped in 1952 which yielded 500 Kilotons. Awefully big for a weapon at the time considering that this explosion was about 40 times more powerful than anything ever droped during WWII.

I'm a huge nuclear fan but not insane. As destructive as nulcear weapons are. I find old photographs and films of these explosions quite beautiful to look at.

Sadly, even after the end of the 'cold war' these weapons are still a serious threat to our world.

no comments and no favs? damn, dont know what to say. i really like this one. browsing through loads of stuff and it jumped out. i think the colour edit really suits it, suits to the drama, small explosion in the centre but large scale after effects spreading throughout. going in my :+fav: book anyway, nice one :)

Thanks for the +Fav. I always liked this one as well. I guess not a lot of others liked it but I'm glad you do. Thanks again.
