Visibility IV / V
On Monday night, I noticed a so handsome Skywarden heading south that I decided to go out to the edge of the field with the camera. The anvil had time to "soften" its top a bit before I got to the open place (picture 1). After a couple of pictures I was left staring at the side sun shining in the other direction and while I looked in the direction of the cloud, it was already mostly scattered, but under it (or from behind?) A different kind of cloud had been revealed (picture 2). This new "daddy" was a pretty great revelation, a couple close-ups from the edge of the cloud in Figures 2 and 3. I thought it could be called a thundercloud if no lightning was observed, but at least it was prophetic, as in the same direction (southeast / Hamina) lightning flashes later in the midnight swirls. A couple of other large monsters were visible to the west, but they were partly obscured by clouds closer.
Now, when I take a closer look at the first and second image, it seems that it is one and the same cloud, from which the upper part was wiped away.
