Oh, our astonishing Texas skies!!!! James, you capture those Panhandle skies with incredible beauty and visual poetry!
This is a beautiful, well exposed photograph
Following up upon three well deserved comments from CAS members about your photo, here is my contribution, if I may.
I like much the portrayal of cloud glory above set in contrast to the glowering and growling threatening skies below. I like the welcome inclusion of the two seemingly fleeing huge juggernauts on the road which lend handsome scale to the cloud drama and edifice above.
fantastic shot! Makes you feel very small…..

James a very beautiful photograph that describes accurately what can be seen in the image. I would be very happy if it was one of mine.
What a wonderful moment, James ! Congrats !!
A cracker shot (pun intended!)! Brill, James, and thanks for the sharing.
I followed this storm in May of 2015 from Lubbock, Texas, to the east about 30 miles down State Highway 40. It produced a massive amount of rain and hail. It also produced a couple of tornados which I could not get close enough to photograph because of the high water left.
Fantastic and really dramatic photos. Ye gods!
Marvellous photo work! Thanks, James!
Marvellous photo, James. Thanks for the sharing – much appreciated.
Love this one, James. Those sleepy eyes and the electrifying twitch! Quite beautiful and somehow funny at the same time.
A lovely way to start off the new day! Welcome vista.
Good colours and composition, James.
I like it….
James, you have done it again! The high plains of Texas have some of the greatest skies on this planet. This is a most impressive photo.
Well said, Ginnie, and yes, Texas certainly is the “home” to some fantastic cloud formations. Grand shot, James.
Good shot, James. Open mouth…
James, which focal length objetive did you employ in that shot?
W-O-W! Amazing photo, James.
Thanks for this spectacular and dramatic shot. How on earth does one capture these literally lightning quick photos?!? What happened to the radio tower?!?
Marvellous photo work!
Super photo James, thank you very much !
Rather symbolic : Where are we going on these roads and under this sinister sky ?
Ah…those beautiful Texas skies! Thanks for sharing this one, James.
Agreed, this is such a Lovely photo. Very nicely captured James.
So so sur real.
Atmospheric and admirably suits the scene of the Veterans Memorial.
I have never seen anything like this, stunning!
Texas is a big state with big skies. Thank you, James, for sharing this amazing one with all of us cloud lovers.
Bravo! Clouds rule!!! I just love the sense of bleak openess of the overall picture. Thanks, James.
Wow, what a sky! So full of drama. Thanks for the share James.
Examlle of use of awind power
And there is a woman in the right hand third, blowing a spec off her hand, could it be a little bit of sunflower petal ?
I hadn’t seen that – all I saw was the animal next to her with a black eye and one tooth.
This is a Spectacular shot James. Beautiful!!!!
Wow all the pics I’ve seen out of Texas are just gorgeous
truly awesome sir a beautiful rendition of the moisture
” nice one” as we say in these parts (north west england “nice one” is mancunian as is “sorted”……. peace.
A follow up to a previous image from James.
Great atmosphere to this photo! I like moody cloud photos.
I used to live in the high plains on the NM side of the TX/NM border. Due to the lack of trees, one really gets involved with the sky. Good thing since some of those storms bring tornadoes. Love this photo. Brings back memories of the wide open spaces…
A photographic masterpiece! Grand photo, James. What a view this must have been to witness for real. Thanks for the sharing of this wonderful vista. Maybe a candidate for April’s “Cloud of the Month”? Hope so.
Superb; well done.
It’s all there!! Simply beautiful and yet powerful – – It got a 5 from me!
I Agree with the previous 4 comments completely. A STUNNER!!!! A 5 Star here too…..
I previously commented on this magnificent photo but could not resist saying it reminds me so powerfully of a song I have always loved, “Ghost Riders In The Sky”. This cloudscape is epochly just that”. It goes hand-in-glove, so to speak viz, the cloudscape and the song. Seems they were made for each other!
Seeing the Mamatus clouds in James’ photo you might like to look at an image on NASA’s APOD page (Astronomy Picture Of the Day) today (15th April) which released this Mamatus cloud image. Have a look – it nicely explains how these interesting clouds are formed:-

What an amazing capture! Just stunning!
Very interesting and attractive view! Håkan Pleijel

This is wonderful. It reminds me of my favorite Georgia O’Keefe painting!
What a fantastic moment!
Incredible shot. This is really nice James. Another Thanks for sharing….
I fully go along with Bryan’s comment. Really beautiful and arresting colours here.
I’ve been to Lubbock but never saw anything like this. Beautiful.
Beautiful shot James.
And again, another WOW! Shot. It just keeps getting better and better. Terrific shot James.
What a contrast to the serene landscape below it!
Great panorama, James.
Great storm shot, James!! I love the contrast, too.
James this such a great shot.
Brilliant shot! Always a danger for us pilots, microbursts.
spectacular! Great photo!
