Thunderstorm with Mammatus 5 Dec 2011

Some pics of mammatus clouds under the 5th Dec storm. Being from Ireland I had never seen these in real life before this. I was blown away by how dramatic they were.

Nice photos. :) I can't believe you took those on a Samsung, the quality's better than what our old camera could do.

I have a Samsung Wave GTS-8500 with a 5 Megapixel camera. All the photos I take are with that now. Phones are pretty good at catching clouds nowadays, plus, you can upload the image immediately, so you can become the 'eyes' of somebody further down the path.
