Stormy skies at dusk



About a week ago, some storms rolled nearby.  The clouds were pretty amazing.

Gorgeous captures! There's as much of a threat of scary weather as there is beauty -- amazing how skies can be both at the same time! But always fascinating and breathtaking. Enjoy your weekend!

Dear T, we are under such a hot spell over here that, the first thing I shouted when I saw your pictures was "They've got a storm brewing over in Texas!!"

... "about a week ago", right? LOL

Wonderful pictures!

I once saw cloud formation very similar to these. They were just captivating to watch. It seemed to me as if I was above the clouds looking down upon them only I was beneath looking up. My mind was spinning.

Definitely different cloud formation. Very nice. I think I would have taken cover tho...

Samantha said...

Did you get hail? We tend to get hail with those clouds!

Genie said...

These clouds are REALLY amazing. I have never seen any like these before. So fluffy and scalloped. Great captures. So glad my Mountain Dew bottle in the fence made you giggle. I am so opposed to littering, but this one was a bit unique and clever. Couldn’t resist taking a picture of it. Happy weekend to you.

Allison said...

That really is amazing. I love the swirly peaks!

We're getting a lightening storm now and the sky is flashing a deep blue across the night sky.

bon bon said...

wow...those are absolutely gorgeous! good examples of why people go storm chasing. :o)

My neighbor, now deceased, was a weather specialist at the airport and would tell me the names of clouds and we have had these here and he has told me what the name is but I can't remember as much as I used to. So I just enjoy what I see.

Bob Bushell said...

Wow, I think that it's starting to rain or nearest to that. Genius photos.

Clouds are like a babbling brook, ever changing! I've seen clouds like that and it meant major storms or tornadoes brewing in every event.

EG Wow said...

For some reason these skies are reminding me of mashed potatoes. Hmmm. I must be hungry!

Elizabeth Grimes said...

It looks like a lava lamp!

Nancy said...

Yep -- those are bad, bad clouds. We get them right before hail or severe thunderstorms. Very cool looking, though. :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Gorgeous cloud formations.... Wow!!!!! We need to see some of those here now since it's been very hot and dry the past couple of weeks...
Hugs,
Betsy

i LOVE clouds and storms...(safe storms)....darkness in the day & lot's of rain. everything gets watered while you stay in & make brownies!!!

Kathy said...

We actually had a little shower that moved through earlier this evening. According to the weather radar at itellicast.com it was moving northwest so maybe it will visit you later tonight!

Gone Country said...

Those clouds are amazing! Great capture!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

The clouds look like they belong on a painting! We had clouds this afternoon and rumbles of thunder, but nothing...not a drop...maybe next time.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Louisiana Belle said...

Stunning, dramatic skies! Very nice.

Dani said...

wow. Super cool. I just shared some cloud photos on my Snowflowers blog.

I've never seen such clouds. Thank you for sharing.

Dar said...

Those look like the same clouds my sister took pictures of about the same time in the Ft. Worth area...except, they were yellow and orange...a scary sight. That was the same day the tornadoes were whirling in TX. Be careful. Take cover when you see these...Cher is right, they brew trouble. Very cool tho!

Cumulonimbus Mammatus! I think that's what they are.. at least that's what I found the clouds very similar to this that I photographed over the North Dakota prairie to be.. you can see them here:
And yes! Dangerous clouds!
