Nebulous noteables: Iowegian monster (Part 2)

In my reply to the comment by ShoreAcres in my last post, I mentioned that a large part of the original cloud had calved off and that the two parts had then migrated apart. I made Iowegian monster 2224this shot of the larger (but not as tall) portion within seconds of the one I featured yesterday.  Imagine, if you can, these two combined. I still get goosebumps when I think what it must have been like to be under it! And, yes, this one was 100 miles away as well.

    It’s especially nice the way the clouds have mimicked the treeline. All of those horizontal lines — the crops, the clouds, the trees, the clear space above and below the clouds, give the image the feel of a lazy, stretching summer day.

      It was exactly that, Linda, where I was, making this shot. I shudder to think what the folks a hundred miles to the east of my position were doing to try to stay out of the way of its fury.

  2. Was there a steam engine at one end of it, Ratty?

  3. I haven’t seen something unrealistically beautiful as this, in a very long time. The photographer is quite dexterous, I must say. Kudos!

  4. Do you know whether the cloud wreaked havoc on the places beneath it?

      Good question! I called the Fort Dodge Messenger (newspaper) earlier today and spoke with an editor. He had been out of town at the time and so missed the clouds, but he seemed receptive, so I sent him yesterday’s photo and asked him to check with their meteorologists about its effects. He said he would try and would get back to me. I hope he does and, if so, I’ll let you know.

  5. Must have been quite the sight to see that expanse of sky covered by such a cloud mass. I’ve not seen the like. We do get some awesome’ flotillas’ that join and separate .
