Some very unstable skies here all afternoon with extensive displays of altocumulus castellanus with 'whales mouth' type structure and heavy showers. Looked very thundery for a time. Took a few shots of the heavy showers.

Thanks very much Steven. Unfortunately no storms formed during the night but I did see some amazing moonbows. Will post images later.

Photo #10 looks very nice with a high contrast. I like to see such structures as imaged on the photo #2. I have imaged the similar "boiling" cloud on May.29.
