A huge thunderstorm passed about ten miles away - shot the high cumulus above in the setting sun.

Love it. Great dramatic shot. Usually I don't care much for shots that show only clouds with no context. This is the exception. Well done.

Thank you all for your comments. Pleased that you like it. Must say I'm well into my seventies and I had never seen a cloud formation like this previously - underneath there was one big storm that apparently did a lot of local damage.
