Don't these mushroom cloud formations portend some severe thunderstorms?

Very nice clear crisp shots.

Those are a couple powerful thunderstorm formations you have captured there. Pilots are always warned to steer clear of those anvil shaped clouds. The winds, updrafts and downdrafts are extremely severe in those beautiful formations.

Nice job.

Spectacular Thuncerheads. They look like they were taking right out of a meterology text book. Cal, you are right on. I seem to remember that there have been vertical wind shear speeds of a couple hundred mile per hour measured in some of those monsters.

Great photos Rocky,
