overwhelming majestic thunderhead!

overwhelming majestic thunderhead!
this is a *big* one, folks!

a very late afternoon thunderstorm, taken where the sun is shining through a hole in the clouds so that this thunderstorm is bathed in light in only a part of the cloud, the rest in shadows.

Miles tall, the topic moisture runs amock. This cloud grew to this size in minutes.

Oh the beauty of the clouds, here in Tallahassee, florida, during the rainy season!

the storm

the storm
Awesome, isn't it?!
the "bark looks worse than its bite".
Late afternoon.
This cloud died out and never made it to where I stand, in fron of my apartment house.

This is what I see nearly every day, if the rainy season is "on", during the summer, here, at...

tallahassee, florida, usa.

The Season begins in late may and runs till early October, but in many years the pattern is spotty, this year, so far, the rains have been scarce.
From 3 to 20 month of rains, the dewpoint is above 70 and the high temp for the day, if sunny, is over 90 to 95 degrees.

85 thunderstorm days a year, ya gotta like storms to live here!

cloud shadow on a cloud!

cloud shadow on a cloud!

the sun has set, the sky glows.

I take this photo from the upper floors of my apartment building, , looking westwards, tallahassee, florida, usa.

The land is flat, I can see for miles and miles, if you enlarge the image, you can see storm thunderheads for maybe 200 miles to the west. Row upon row of showers.
The sun set behind the closest thunderhead and thus its shadow
is casted upsidedown upon the clouds! This is where that "inverted cone" comes from.

yes, off to the far far distance, especially to the left side, near the horizen, one can see many rainclouds.

a Study: an evening oncoming storm

a Study: an evening oncoming storm
late in the afternoon, almost evening, I took this photo from the landing of my apartment building, about the 10th floor, looking west.
Not only are there interesting patterns in the clouds, the setting sun gives to these clouds a kind of "purple" color.
Note how the light, at the top of the image, glows as if the clouds are burning with an inner white light!

There are many many kinds of cloud textures here.

tallahassee, florida, usa.

tallahassee has over 80 thunderstorm days a year!
