Morning Clouds

This is sunrise on a thundercloud near my home one morning. I know I talk about the clouds probably way too much, but I'm not sure I'll ever fully get used to them. If you can stand the summer heat here in Florida and get out now and again you'll be rewarded with dramatic scenes in the sky like this. To me these are independence day clouds, as in the movie of the same name. If I were an alien I could park a huge ship in one of these, load up on all kinds of energy from the lightning and then be on my way to the next planet on the map. But I'm not an alien, a little odd maybe, but not an alien.
