Towering Cumulus


This monster of a cloud formation which dwarfed the land below as storms roamed the area at the time, is a form of cumulus cloud called cumulus congestus.

  1. These are summer clouds for us, so it surprised me to see this one. Then, I checked the date. May is about when we’d begin seeing them, too — and aren’t they marvelous? I love watching them on the days when they billow up quickly.
