Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

As pretty as the clouds can be I like the one were you include your farm in them.

That farm of mine is a 400 +/- year old French fortress. Now a historic site.

I have been on a farm only part of one day, less than an hour, in my life.
The farmer was kind enough to use his tractor to pull my father's car out of a mud packed road.
He let me ride on the tractor. It was fun.

Here are some clouds of my own - the first two are looking up from my back deck at some interesting clouds, the third picture is the view from a friend's deck in Vancouver and the last 2 are looking out my front window at a nice double rainbow.

The iPhone camera has come a long way. Unfortunately I almost never pull out the old 35mm Canon AE1 - so much flexibility but its a commitment. My wife picked up a digital SLR Nikon a few years back and its got the convenience of digital format but still with the lenses and so forth it rarely comes out. The phone camera has both exploded and devastated photography. Is that possible? Definitely a lot more amateur photographers who may every now and then get a great picture but I have to say when you compare most amateurs to a pro, the pro still wins - when you combine the eye of an artist with the training/skill of the pro you have something special.

Here are a few more I took a while ago - the first picture I call Something Wicked This Way Comes (or, if you care about the bodywork on your vehicle you better find shelter fast) and the rest are of a cloud structure that I called The Hand of God.  I don't title all of my pictures but some just seem to title themselves.  I was having a cup of tea on my deck when some weather rolled in and I looked up and thought that it looked as though the Hand of God was reaching for me.  I went inside, I'm not ready to go yet.

Thats a very large gust front. I can see the trees in the background leaning away from it. Without seeing the top, or height of it, looks like it was nearly a supercell.

We can have some violent weather around here (southern Alberta) even tornadoes but nothing like what you folks have. My least favourite weather is hail, weather's cruelest joke. Ice balls falling from the sky at high velocity. Seriously?! The insurance companies have gotten together and funded hail/cloud seeding programs. Planes will go up into the storm fronts and seed hail with beads of silver iodide, potassium iodide or dry ice, its supposed to make the hail fall sooner and smaller. Unfortunately I live on the western edge of the city in a location that qualifies as soonerSad Smaller hail stones are much less destructive than larger ones which can substantial damage to homes, structures, cars, crops etc. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_seeding
