[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is cheating, as it is not really Trabzon I took it through a airplane window.
I was flying over the area in a Boeing 777/330 from Dubai (UEA), on the way to Gatwick (UK) and the airplane had moments before gone over Trabzon and was now over the Black Sea.

I liked the Cumulonimbus (top) cloud forming, while Cumulus clouds can be seen below.

Some Cloud facts

Cumulus clouds are fair weather clouds and have a lifetime of 5-40 minutes. They often resemble cotton balls, and can form in a variety of ways. Either by a front of cool, moist air meeting a body of warm, dry air. Or by a high of cool dry air, that can cause their formation.
Cumulus clouds can cause rain, although rain does not always develop. However, harmless fair weather cumulus can later become towering Cumulonimbus clouds that are associated with powerful thunderstorms which I think was happening here.
