sunset looking to the west, over tallahassee, florida, usa.

This image shows a very complex pattern of old, dying, thunderstorms. The upper level winds have pulled the tops of the storms off of them and then the setting sun underlights one of them, then the undercloud evaporates leaving only the tops.
Note how there are may such storms here and if you look closely, you can see even more storms yet to die, about at the horizen where the sun has set.
