I really like clouds and here are some....
It is kind of hard to tell in the photo but these are reverse convection clouds. What is left aftter a thunder head expends almost all of it's energy. The cauliflower like vapors that shoot up in a thunder head and expand upward are now expanding downward. There clouds are called Mammatus Clouds.
if you google Mammatus Clouds you will find more defined examples of them. Of course, my fascination with clouds drives my curiosity, sense of adventure and awe with nature.
