As this storm exploded after twilight, an incredible scene unfolded before our eyes. As the updraft intensified, mammatus began to develop under the updraft. Before long, the field of mammatus was flickering with crawling bolts of lightning, right over our heads! :wow: Wish I would have shot this in RAW :shakefist: Oh well, hopefully something equally as photogenic next spring ;)

The bubbling clouds are real, they're mammatus clouds. They form when the winds are really turbulent...usually within a strong storm such as a supercell that can produce tornadoes. They are beautiful, but often a visual warning sign of severe weather! =)
