I'd say this is a fine example of using back lighting to make a dramatic shot. The cloud interruption under the plume appears to be some very fine white steam which did not go opaque, as did the core of the plume. But looking at the texture (or lack thereof), it may well have been some work to cut the harshness of the backing sun.

Speaking of steam, there is a Lerro charter here in Chattanooga today, so we should be seeing some interesting shots of the Southern steam jacks soon...
