Hi Greg, Great collections of photos. The technical name for these type of clouds is,Mammatus. They are associated with towering cumulonimbus clouds, usually being found on the underside of anvil cloud. Cheers, Marilyn

Hi Marilyn (Mazaquilt)

Thanks for dropping in for a look.

I did know that this was the name for that type of cloud, but thought (when I posted it) the name I gave the photo was much more descriptive.

It's still the most viewed photo I have.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you will come back often.

Hi Steandeb

I don't mind that you have a printout, glad you like it. I do however want to know who's been 'borrowing' it... I did notice it wasn't marked as one of your favourites though :(

Contact me outside (my.name @cma.nsw.gov.au) and I will send you a larger digital version.

Cheers, Greg
