Approaching Asperatus Cloud

From Wednesday morning - there was not a bit of word about storms in the forecast. And then this monster random storm pops up out of nowhere - with the most bizarre asperatus cloud I've ever seen. And the lightning was spectacular.


The only photoshopping I did on this photo was to increase the contrast in the clouds so it looked more like what the human eye was actually seeing - photos tend to come out flatter than the real image. So this is pretty much what it looked like - lots of peeps were outside, staring up at the sky at these weird cloud formations.
