Mammatus clouds  by EOS20

This series of Mammatus clouds where taken on December 27 2004 just as a really big summer thunderstorm had formed over my house.

From what I read, the Mammatus clouds are caused by ice in the clouds becoming heavy and causing the cloud to sag.

A very rare site!

EOS 20D And 70-200 f/4 L.

    It was during a summer thunderstorm after a really hot day.

    From what I read, Its caused by Ice in the clouds being very heavy and making the clouds droop and sag.
