This Is The Most Awesome Storm Cloud I Have Ever Seen… By Far.

I have never seen a storm cloud, or any type of cloud for that matter, remotely as awesome as this one. And yes, “awesome” in this case is used quite literally, defined by Dictionary.com as “inspiring an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, or fear; causing or inducing awe”.

So, first of all, a huge “thank you” goes to Reddit user InsideLight for sharing it with us, under the title:

Beast of a Storm in East Central Illinois.

I thought the Redditor could have done a bit better with the title, but nothing he or she could have written would have managed to describe the thing itself.

Fortunately, InsideLight points us to the image’s source, which gives us a few other incredible storm images. Here they are.

1. Monday, August 25th, 2011- East Central Illinois~ Incredibly structured leading edge of a severe warned storm. Note an embedded wall cloud behind the shelf, just above the farm buildings. This storm was in full on beast mode.

5. One of those times that I wish I had a lens that was wider than 10mm. I’m never happy when the bolt runs off the edge of the frame. Sometimes it’s happens because I didn’t center on the right area. Sometimes the storm is just too wide to know where to shoot. Then you get ones like this, running off both horizontal edges and nothing you can do but wish you had a wider angle lens.

9. A couple of years ago back on December 18, 2012 in a town called Kalbar at the bottom of our mountain range in Queensland, Australia. This was from the back edge of a storm that passed over right on sunset which made the whole sky glow a pink-ish colour as the sun illuminated the back of the anvil.
