Towering Cumulus

Cumulus congestus cloud

At sunset and after some heavy downpours of rain I noticed these huge towering cloud formations roaming the skies as they moved off. I believe this type of cloud is called Cumulus Congestus, as well as Towering Cumulus. They have considerable vertical development and are usually taller than wider, and can look like giant monster cauliflowers roaming the skies.

  1. Dear Pete,

    Thanks for sharing this amazing photo 🙂

    These kind of clouds indicate also a possible thundercoming approaching, just then, when they tower up and clouds get yellowish as well.

    All the best and a nice Sunday
    Didi
