    Very cool clouds. Never seen anything like them. The shots over NYC are awesome!

    I did. See my post over in the "New Cloud" thread. I didn't have a very good view.

    They are quite common over the midwest in intense t-storms with organized structures. Not common around here...I see them once or twice a summer...rarely as defined as this...and never yet at sunset...

    I've seen them once here before. Ironically, just after we got out of seeing "Twister" in the theaters. And it wasn't well lit from below like this time.

    Thanks, it was beautifully captured by my iPhone and framed by the wonderful power lines. Worthy for framing, or maybe a poster.
