We had a hot and cloudy afternoon. It was one of those afternoons where it looked like a good thunderstorm could happen any minute.
Around 6:30 PM a thunder cell formed and grew rapidly. It disappeared just as rapidly an hour later without one drop of rain.
When I see the cloud build up I think of the tremendous energy that it takes to build the cloud and pile it up. I also like the beauty and movement as things build up.
You really need a horizon to show off a cloud. My neighbor's trailer isn't a pretty horizon.
