Amazing clouds. Not seen one like that. I thought maybe it meant a tornado is potentially going to form.

Great mammantus clouds. Some of the best I've ever seen, and with the sky so blue. Usually they are a sign of meteorological trouble.

Beautiful clouds! Guess I wouldn't have thought of cow udders, my first thought was cotton balls. But whatever, they're beautiful.

Connie said...

Those are neat clouds. They look like big puffs of cotton.

I love this Sarah! Those are really incredible clouds. I've never seen anything like it.

P.S. Would you believe Linda of Linda Letters just blogged about her Acer computer? Sheesh! Now I'm dying to get one even though we don't need one.

Sarah, I love clouds when they are billowy and big like those in the picture! Good job capturing them!

Fantastic puffs of cloud.

Gorgeous. I loved growing up with my grandmother. She was the best weatherperson ever just reading the signs from the clouds or the critters on the farm. Or the trees.

I have always been one to gaze up at the various types of clouds but I must say I have never seen any that looked quite like that. They are really, really cool looking! Great photo and happy Skywatch Friday!

That's so funny about them being called "mamma" clouds! Your photos are wonderful.

Stunning....very dramatic!

Made me want to close my eyes and open them again to see if it had been an illusion!

Happy New Skywatching Year!
