I grew up where these huge Mothership formations were fairly common, but this is one of the most dramatic and perfectly organized ones I have ever seen.
I am willing to bet that the rain this monster produced strangled a few toads.

Well Done!

I can only dream. With this 100+ degree heat over the Sacramento Valley, I can't take it anymore. The humidity is unbearable for us. Granted, it's nothing like the south, but we're not used to this mugginess. That cold front would be one welcome sight here.

Everyone has already said it all, so I will just
say Ditto! This is one amazing shot, Kim, and
of course it had nowhere to go but Blue!
Congratulations! I hope you're going to blow
this one up and frame it!

Quoting LarryD:
HOLY COW! You can quit taking pictures now. You won't ever get anohter one with this much drama in it. Man what a shot. Both of them. Very cool. You didn't get any damage did you? I slept through the whole thing!


Oh my, thank you so much everyone! And thank you Approvers. This was the biggest and most organized structure I have ever seen, it formed pretty quickly and yes Larry we did get the wind. 46m.p.h. and 1.70" of rain. It rained so hard I couldn't see the barn from the house!

About ruralartist

ruralartist

There's just something about the weather that fascinates me, perhaps its living on the great plains. Our daily lives are influenced by it and living on a land with no mountains, big ravines, waterfalls, trees and such tends to make the sky the star of the show here. Hope you enjoy perusing my images. -Kim
