As your caption says the clouds are really strange. Good shot.

Thanx for the comment. They are called mammatus clouds as they resemble the female human mammary glands. They came when we were having tornado warnings quite a few years ago. Havent seen them since.

These mammatus clouds appear after severe weather. We had them after a damaging hailstorm. You did a great job of capturing them with the lighting and shadows.

I've seen this incredible formation in Nebraska and NE Michigan. It's a neat sight to see. Terrific capture.

Great shot of these! We always say they look like the bottoms of eggs...like thru an invisible carton.
