Here's a beautiful example of the thunder clouds we have in Carson Valley, Nevada. August skys over the Sierras can be sensational ... this cloud showed up right on time! Thanks to Jim Valentine for this wonderful shot!
Another day in the Carson Valley. When we don't have blue skies we get spectacular clouds. This view was from my office this afternoon, 7.31.09. Of course the formation changed by the minute and the hour. There was some lightening later, a smattering of rain, but overall just a cooling from the cloud cover. The entertaining cloud formations morph continuously offering splendor and enjoyment all day long.
