Nice Images. really like the New Zealand one.  I have seen these in Texas.  Sometimes the sky here is almost scary when you feel the temperature drop 30 degrees ( F ) and see clouds that are unusual.

WOW!!!

Wonderful cloud formation...

I'll check my myriads of shots to see if perhaps I've been fortunate enough to have a similar ASPERATUS CLOUD photo...

BTW, pray tell what name/model Digital Camera and settings is suggested to get sharp high resolution CLOUD photos? I have been using run of the mill type Digital Cameras such as SONY, Canon, Samsung...and would like to upgrade to more "professional" quality type photos...Your comments will be much appreciated...(ray.american@gmail.com)...

NEW? ... rare maybe. I saw clouds like that on a cold January day while travelling in Arkansas - long time ago - maybe 1974 or so. They were mesmerizing and I've never run across them again. A good description was like an upside down undulating ocean - but smooth. Not mammatus clouds ( they are too puffy underneath)
