It deserves to be a staff pick. What a great shot!

This gives a new meaning to the tower saying "early right turnout approved". Great shot!

I was fortunate enough to see this that day, there was something going on with the museums and I was down at the windsock. Sort of scared me as I had no idea why it was rolling so hard!
