  1. I’ve been waiting for the mother-ship to come back and get me . . . I didn’t know I was supposed to be in Utah. Bastards!!

    . . . I bet they did not wait around, either . . .

    • My thoughts exactly, Emilio…thought it was a fleet of body-snatchers on the horizon…and no, they didn’t wait around…skedaddled after a bit….

  4. Awesome is not a word I use much, but I agree with you! What drama! I’ve never seen this cloud formation. Impressive photo!

  8. I saw this type of cloud at the airport in Salt Lake City once…just awesome! Nice capture:)

    • Thank you, Suzanne…this one was just down the road a bit from that same airport. πŸ™‚

  9. Totally amazing and mind-boggling. I love them lenticular clouds. From what I’ve read, they’re supposed to predict rain. Watch out for flash floods. Truly great catch, my friend.

    • Indeed amazing and mind-boggling, Gunta…they’re still very new to me…and wonderful. This batch didn’t bring any rain with them…maybe they got too stirred-up afterwards to do so, but they sure were pretty. Thank you. πŸ™‚

  14. That cloud looks very dark.

    July 31, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    • It was very dark, Shimon…with the kind of darkness in the middle of the day that you could almost feel….

    What a great cloud capture, Scott. Almost looks like a 3 layer sponge cake. I never cease to be amazed at how wonderful Mother Nature is.
