Many years ago when I was taking the Queen's Shilling, I used to gaze long and hard at aerial photography from 'various sources' for 'various purposes'. These days, thanks to Google Earth et al, we all get to see the stuff.
Now: in amongst the other momentous events of recent times, it may or may not have come to your attention that a tragic explosion occurred at Zygi in Cyprus a few days ago - details here.
And what an explosion it was: take a butcher's at this. Get the cursor-line over to the right-hand side of the photo, then drag it slowly to the left.
To orient yourself with what has happened, scroll down and take the wrecked bottom-left fuel tank as clock-centre, then pan out to 8 o'clock looking for a faint circle, in level ground, of about the same radius as the tank.
That didn't used to be level ground ...
After you've marveled at the destruction (sorry, but it's human nature - and I've seen worse), marvel at something else: see how the row of chimney-stacks (one big and four small, directly below the fuel tanks, given away by the shadows they throw) have survived where all else has been demolished. That's because blast-waves equalise around things of circular cross-section. It always surprises people.
