Slate calls it "clearly photoshopped." It isn't, but it is post-processed (with the Camera+ iPhone app) heightening the contrast on the clouds. It's a cellphone photo, so it obviously won't stand for much post-processing, but those clouds were really there. That's pretty much been our weather around here for as long as I can remember. It's photo #2 in the slideshow. I'm also credited with the next image, too, but I've never been to Lebanon, so obviously that's a mistake.
