Cool pictures! My 8 year old daughter noticed the cloud before I did that day. I remember thinking to myself, it takes a spectacular cloud to catch the attention of an 8 year old!!! It was cool, glad someone captured it in a photo.

I saw that cloud last week as well, it was amazing. I was going to take a picture but the battery on my phone was dead.

Yes, but I really can't take the credit (I still thank you, however Richard!). This was a point and shot moment. The only Photoshop tweakage was on the one with the water tanks -- I dodged the tanks to lighten up the name Miles City. No enhancing of the colors -- its was just that great all on its own. Later, that cloud went black and due to its enormity you could see multiple flashes of lightening in different portions. I should have taken some of those shots -- my old weather friend Bruce would have stuck around and gotten those shots. I kept thinking "Close Encounters".

Dammit, missing the edit function already (thanks, Josh) ...

Thank you, BART. That's BART, not Bill. I am thanking BART. Everyone should thank BART. And Richard. Along with BART. BART took the photos. Again, BART.

In closing, BART.

Thank you, BART.

That's okay, Brian. My brother's name is Bill and the names get mixed up all the time. Then there is Black Bert, Bart's meaner cousin -- right Curt?

Sarah, did you shoot your photos from the pine hills area? If so, that would really show the enormity of that cloud.

This was the cloud that produced the tornado in Praire county. Great Picture!
