Dynamic and explosive! Powerful stuff! Clouds rule!!!
A really, amazingly dramatic, stormy photo, Mike, well done! Definitely looks like a cauliflower or a bomb waiting to explode at any moment! Looks like a strong autumn, electrical thunderstorm and unstable weather will happen pretty soon that afternoon, after a relatively hot bout of weather over North Phoenix, USA, with plenty of thunder and lightning and a deluge of rain. Stay inside and be safe! From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Thank You Rebecca and Laurence!..Timing was very important for this shot. I consider myself fortunate to have clicked the shutter when I did. The cloud was fast moving as it approached its upward limitation, the troposphere . Yes, I think I caught it at its best.

To me, the dog cloud looks like he is lying on his back in the sky, totally relaxed and sound-asleep, with his mouth wide open as he snores his head off. No wonder he is the only large cloud in the sky, as he might have disturbed and scared everyone else away. From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Can definitely see the towering poodle cloud, with its silver outline dramatically towering in the distance at sunset on the other side of the ocean in the Cayman Islands. Every cloud has a silver lining. The crepascular rays and shadows creates a dramatic, almost holy-light effect just before dusk. Well done! From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
A most pleasing shot and enjoyable to view.
Thanks for the sharing, Robert. I just wish I was there!
A really dramatic, stormy picture. Well done, Mike! The pileus cloud formation or lens-shaped anvil almost looks like it is wearing a hat. From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
There was a tragic happening on Oct 1 in Las Vegas in 2017, where 58 people were killed at a concert, and one year later, they held a get together / memorial/ concert and this appeared in the sky that day over Las Vegas Healing Garden, I don’t know if this photographer was at the concert, but my cousin was and showed me a picture of the sky like this. It had a great affect on the entire crowd.
Quite dramatic! To me, other than a seahorse, the cloud in the picture also looks like a duck quickly waddling across the sky. From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Very dramatic picture, Charles. Wow! The stormy cumulonimbus clouds in the background look like they are rising into the air like smoke from an explosive, volcanic eruption or an extra huge cauliflower. Looks like there is going to be a change in the hot weather that afternoon quite soon. I was there a couple of years ago with my mother on a coach trip at a similar time of year in the same place. Very beautiful. I also went to Slovenia(Ljubljana), Prague, Vienna, Graz, Zagreb, the lakes in the Croatian Highlands and Split. The European Alps were beautiful. I took a picture of a funnel cloud on the lake border between Croatia and Bosnia, when we stopped for a lunch café break. From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
