Mammatus Clouds in Hermantown MN

September 09, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Last week, on September 3, 2014, I was driving home and had to pull over to get a few shots of the amazing scenery that was around me!  I only had my tablet, so forgive the grainy quality, but the clouds just looked amazing.  This orange tint is completely how it looked - even the air looked orange!  It was very other-worldly and a very cool experience.  A family member, who is a weatherman, noted on the photograph linked to my Facebook page that these are mammatus clouds - they occur when the atmosphere is unstable.  Knowing a little more about them made them all the more interesting :) so I thought I'd share a few of the shots!  All three are from the same night; the last photo actually came first and then once I got pulled over and in the spot I wanted to be in, the mammatus clouds made their way in, overtaking the sky!
