This series of Mammatus clouds where taken on December 27 2004 just as a severe summer thunderstorm had formed over my house in Perth, Western Australia.

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 17-40 f/4 L.
