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.
