Hi Tyler. That's two great mammatus images!. The anvil on that cell is a monster. Was that a supercell?.

I agree with what you say, they are tough to shoot, and trying to get something in the foreground for a sense of scale is very difficult if the display is overhead. Then the sun angle to...it's amazing how an 'average' mammatus display can be a breathtaking sight with a low sun producing the orange or red colours on the bags. They are cool things, I always love to see a good display. This time of year is good for us in this country because the Sun is lower during the day increasing the chances of a coloured display. It has been a active year for weather here and it doesn't look like it's going to settle down either.
