That's one reason I enjoy living in north Texas. Great thunderstorms.
Very nice photo. I have yet to venture out on a day like that to get a picture. Bravo!

Oh, wow, those do look familiar!! Beautiful as long as they don't wreak any havoc where you are! Terrific photo! Take care! Have a great weekend!

TCKK said...

That is so neat. It looks like a big fluffy blanket up there!

I love this pic. I need to take pics of clouds instead of sun sets. I love your blog. I say it all the time but it reminds me of home what you write about. xx

Looks like a blanket about to smother you! Great shot! And I'm glad you have solved the spider problem.

Martha said...

Wow, it looks like a down comforter.

Double thick indeed - like looking at a Cappuccino from the inside!

Seriously, Sarah, I've never seen storm clouds like that. They look like a living, breathing organism.

Ooohhhhh cooollll!!! That looks like waves but also like snow. Way cool!

Mike said...

Wow, they look kind of strange. Amazing capture.

Esther Garvi said...

Wow, that sky is so thick and so cool!! My skywatch of the week is tucked away in the bush post! Tranquil and peaceful, as usual. Only get heavy clouds during rainy season, but then there is always a lot of thunder involved. Sheba sends a big kiss! Do you guys have a dog, Sarah, or any plans of getting one?

Nat@London Calling said...

Those are superb clouds... much nicer than the dull grey flatness that has covered London all week!

Now that is one beautiful cloud formation.

Joan said...

Yikes...that sky sure is ominous...and beautiful at the same time.

Dewdrop said...

Looks like waves of clouds. They are very similar to mammatus clouds, which are my absolute favorite. They are like a warm blanket.

fishing guy said...

Sarah: Very powerful storm clouds, there are some great layers there.

Linnea W said...

Unbelievable...how dramatic. I've never had the pleasure to experience a sky like that in person. Thanks for sharing...

Lisa Wilson said...

Looks more like a sheet of cotton than clouds!

Erin said...

oh look at those clouds...they are awesome...look like giantic fluffy pillows.

Arija said...

Magnificent clouds, I'm left speechless.

Mmm said...

Whoa. those are some sriously impressive but very looming dark clouds! It makes me feel like the Matrix is about to unfold. Crazy. Love them though.
