Thank you Mitch for rising early and catching this unusual and spectacular scene and then sharing it with us.
A well composed and well thought out photo, Mitch.
I like the use of the 1/3rds old and fabled photographic technique which never fails to please one visually i.e. the employment of the two trees in the foreground to, in effect, support the cloud centred uppermost, and then, the three clouds one third in on the left of the lower part of the photo. “The Thirds” never fail photographically.

Amazing clouds and great shot overall.
Extremely beautiful. Both colours, composition and shapes are making this photo unique! Thank you so much Mitch!

Good seen, Marie.
Would this be an example of a Helm cloud of the type seen in the Lake District and Yorkshire, for example, Ribbleshead railway viaduct?
A soothingly quiet muted vista with the clouds complimenting and setting off the overall majestic scenery.
Most pleasing! Thanks much, Reddi, for this shot. It brought back fond memories of my visits to this wonderful part of the world.
Excellent shot, Mike.
This photo is another of your special hallmark.
Yes thanks Laurence you got it in one. I just love the drama of lightning photography and have taught myself how to reliably do it. My preference is single lightning strike rather than multiple.
A calming, restful and soothing photo, Linda. It finds my pleasure easily.
