Here are some unusual photos of clouds. They are so beautiful and yet we seem to take them for granted!

This type is called a Lenticular Cloud.

Those are really fantastic pictures, thank you for sharing them! Did you take any yourself?

You don't see many odd cloud formations here but i do remember once on a bus trip i saw a large cloud with a really massive hole right through the middle, almost like an Eye of the Storm, it was pretty cool.

I especially like that orange mushroom cloud, i think i would have been a little freaked out if i saw that, it looks dangerous!

the mushroom clouds are super cells. those are usually very intense thunderstorms, often producing heavy rains, strong winds, hail, and some tornadoes. if you see a big mushroom cloud like one of those, it'd probably be a good idea to head for shelter unless you'd like to go to oz.  yes.gif

oh! and as a quick thought, here are a couple of cloud pictures that i've taken... nothing unusual, just kind of neat...

I'm afraid not. In England we only have one kind - the big gray blanket kind that rains non-stop dontgetit.gif

my guess would be that there are a few very small spots of high pressure in those areas for whatever reason.
