Cumulonimbus capillatus

A dark brooding example somewhat exaggerated in monochrome which I occasionally use to photograph clouds.  It's almost like a piece of Mahler's 5th symphony.

Although this is just a section, these can be huge structures towering vast heights into the sky.  These often occur in the summer during hot stormy weather and often heavy rain storms will follow, possibly with hail or thunder.  I love these!

These are energetic clouds arising from cumulus congests through powerful upward drafts which can develop into Cumulonimbus capillatus shown here.
