Get the fuck out of here. The jealousy runs deep. I've literally never gotten those clouds traveling the planet... need to research what creates them more closely and chase them.

Good shooting, Scott. For me the top of the line is the farmhouse.

Love the second and third but that's not to say the first isn't pretty stunning as well.

Well, first you need a thunderstorm. Reading on Wikipedia, I was surprised how widespread mammatus clouds are. On the other hand, we have plenty of thunderstorms here but I probably see mammatus only once a year or so. And hardly ever during sunset.

Thanks for the comments, everyone. I would have liked to make the farmhouse smaller but there was a line of grain bins behind me.

Beautiful photos and some of my favorite cloud formations! I also prefer the first one.
