A developing supercell as viewed near Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The wide open spaces of the Great Plains afford views of storms that aren’t available in more populated metro areas. This photo was taken from behind the storm. It had just passed overhead and was still well developing. The dark streaks visible beneath the clouds are distant summer rains.

    Those are some beautiful cumulus(?) clouds. I like it.

  • Thank you for the kind comment! Thunderheads are cumulonimbus clouds… a combination of cumulus and nimbus clouds. This storm didn’t reach severe status, so the thunderhead isn’t nearly as massive as some.
