Amazing shelf cloud from Kirby Wright


Photographer Kirby Wright captured this amazing image of a shelf cloud over Lake Mendota this morning about 6:00 a.m. The UW-Madison is on the left side of the photo. We’ve been getting some pretty strong storms the last couple of days and if you’re in the right spot you’ll catch some pretty interesting clouds.

      Thanks for commenting, Mary! The photo caught so many people’s attention. It must have been something to see for the photographer, so early in the morning, I think so … a sleeping dragon awakening :-)
