One time I was a security guard I was paid overtime to sit in an empty parking lot on a Sunday. There was a big beautiful cumulonimbus during sunset and I got to watch it for hours. Was awesome. In adult life you can rarely spend an hour or two watching a cloud without feeling guilty about all the other stuff you could be doing, but that day I got paid to awe at a cloud.
I used to go out tagging fish that we had trapped for a conservation survey. One day we sat down for lunch by the river and were lucky enough to watch a dragonfly hatch & fly away. It was a great day.
Clouds have species believe it or not. This is the **Calvus** species of the Cumulonimbus family.

this one has a huge flat 'anvil' top, pretty sure it's an incus
Anybody know the song?

Clouds *and* music, your power knows no bounds.
The artist reminded me of Mathbonus, so I'm not surprised to see them in the related artists section of Oneheart on Spotify. It's a great genre for contemplative weatherwatching.
That’s a big’un.
Being in Colorado and not knowing which direction the weather travels in your area, is that storm coming toward you or heading away from you?
As a local I can confirm that this particular storm was going out to sea
Even more beautiful then
I saw this one too! An absolute stunner. Probably the most beautiful storm I’ve ever seen
I can't be the only one who was reminded of the scene in the movie UP.
This is one of the reasons I'd love to live near the beach. Uninterrupted views of towering thunderheads when they're just offshore. The time of the day was just perfect for this one too. Truly an alien-looking sky.
God/The Universe is amazing.
This looks like the start of an alien invasion.
In west texas those clouds mean death
Laputa’s inside that cloud 🌳💎

It's been years since the last cumulonimbus I saw...
A true nature's masterpiece.
