This was a shelf cloud that I saw just outside the town of Jet Oklahoma. I like that the white farm does seem to have a scared expression.

High expectations for big storms which resulted in a busted day! Decided to head out early in the day to see what I could see and the result was receiving this image over the Woodlands Radar station! Super excited when this happened as I had been trying for this one for 3 years! One shot checked off my bucket list! Exciting day despite the busted ending!

This is only the 2nd time this summer with some severe weather (yes, it is a very bad season here). A bow echo from the south produced this huge shelf cloud, followed by severe wind gusts. One of the best I've seen in the Netherlands in years!

As has been the norm all summer, my tripod shuts off any lightning nearby. Still managed a few ones in the distance from last night though.
