Thought these were a varient of mammatus clouds, have since been told that they might be caused from a "gravity wave." Apparently, those are hard to capture - if so, SOOOO glad I caught it! LOL

Meringue:  that's what the sky
reminded me of:  clouds beaten,
whipped to a frenzy of activity,
overhead.  Upper level dynamics
combined with a stalled front to
the south rolled in the storms
on the winds of turbulence:  if
not dessert, mountains or ocean
waves.  One of the strangest
(scariest, in a beautiful sort of
way) cloud formations I've seen!
And tomorrow, could do it again.  =]

They are fantastic and you do them honor in your descriptive poem. A gravity wave! Ive not heard of that so I'll have to google it. I know the pole moves as the earth wobbles, learned that is geography class. Good work. Hugs, J'nia

Yes, if you turn that photo 180 degrees it becomes a sea, or a dirty snow landscape.
