storm coulds, sturgeon bay, door county, wisconsin

Last night I saw a break in the rainy weather and the possibility of a sunset.  The sky and clouds were very stunning so I went to downtown Sturgeon Bay in Door County, Wisconsin for a look.  I sent my drone up for some shots.  After the sun set behind some clouds, I stayed downtown for a bit to get look for some other photos.  Then I noticed the sky to the west darkening fast as dramatic clouds moved in.  I stopped by the bridge just as a shelf clouds moved overhead.  I love watching shelf clouds because they are so ominous and spooky as they quickly and quietly move across the sky.

A few years ago I captured another shelf cloud from this same spot, my timing wasn’t as good this time but I still managed to capture the drama.
