Residents of the normally-sunny island of Sardinia could have been forgiven for running for the hills when this terrifying mushroom cloud appeared in the skies during an intense thunderstorm.

But while it may look like the aftermath of a nuclear explosion the awesome cloud was a purely natural phenomenon – a giant storm cell lit up from the inside by a series of lightning bolts.

The stunning set of photographs was taken by 27-year-old photographer Stefano Garau who captured the incredible moment from the balcony of his house after noticing the storm moving in fast.
