Wall Cloud

by Chris' Landscape Images Of Australia

Art Print

DESCRIPTION

Collect your choice of gallery quality Giclée, or fine art prints custom trimmed by hand in a variety of sizes with a white border for framing.

An extremely dangerous cloud, a wall cloud (or pedestal cloud) is a large, lowering cloud formation that develops beneath the base of a cumulonimbus cloud that often forms tornadoes. It is typically beneath the rain-free base (RFB) portion of a thunderstorm, and indicates the area of the strongest updraft within a storm. Wall clouds are sometimes an indication of a rotating mesocyclone in a thunderstorm, and most strong tornadoes form from wall clouds.

I was caught up in this terrifying storm (I guess that's because I chased it ) and suffered hail damage to my car, a very expensive photo!

Such a stunning capture!! When I was young, my dad warned me of wall clouds (or shelf clouds as he called them). I've always been terrified/fascinated with tornadoes because I've had two come within a block of my home before.

Thanks for your comment, Josrick! Yes, they are certainly dangerous & terrifying when up close, I too became concerned as the wind & hail crept up so quickly ~ so I can relate to your experience as a teenager but they are another piece of unique nature we live in!
