Skywatch Friday - Thundercloud at Sunset

Back in the summer, I caught this thunderhead just before sunset. It was much bigger than it appears here, this is captured at 12mm (18mm in film equivalent). We get a lot of afternoon thunderstorms here in the May through September timeframe. If you like lightning photos I've got a couple here and here, and a distant thunderstorm with lightning here, all from before when I joined Skywatch Friday.

  11. Nice capture! I've seen some of the Colorado thunderstorms, both form the ground and the air. One trip back to MD we took off and the pilot announced the storm went to 60,000 feet. He flew a good ways south before turning east.
