    Wow, great photos Chris. Looks like the stormy weather on the prairies. I have lived in Manitoba and Saskatchewan and remember seeing storm like these. Ahh to be back in big sky country again.

    :thumb: Chris...Those are exceptional pictures !!! Have you thought about entering them in a photo contest somewhere ? Maybe at least send them in to a photo magazine or something. Thanks.

    Hi Dick,, These pictures were sent to me from an old friend in Vancouver.

    I wish I had the credit for them, or could give the photographer the credit He/She deserves. :wave:

    Those are spectacular pictures. :thumb: I'm always astounded when I see the edges of a storm - rounded swirls of pure energy. Any feedback on the camera equipment used in the photos? :confused:

    Chris, it's funny, but my daughter sent me the same series of pictures (in the form of a Powerpoint-presentation) a few weeks ago. They are really great! :thumb:

    Now this thread rang a bell and so I went into my archives. And indeed, I found one more pic, which I photographed in the Swiss Alps - it looks almost like the smoke plume of a volcanic eruption! Paint such a cloud on a backdrop, and every visitor will explain you that clouds like this one simply don't exist! :D :D :D

    Of course there's no such thing like volcanoes in the Alps, but this afternoon we sure had one hell of a thunderstorm! And this cloud was only a precursor of much more to come (torrents of rain and hail enough to do some skiing on it...) :eek:
