Over no horizon, lower Cumulus and upper-level AltoCumulus mackerel clouds flow

Preview synopsis: An ad-free, 720p, 30 fps preview of this clip to stream and play for your consideration.

Scene notes: Exemplar of towering clouds. These are called Cumulus congestus. If the clouds were closer together (greater humidity) or the air was a little warmer, a thunderstorm would have formed. Later in the day, these clouds did form a storm. One gets the impression that these clouds, when experienced in the morning or around noon, are a fair indicator of rain or lightning to come shortly. Visually observing these clouds closely allows the observer the ability to predict rainfall with higher accuracy than a weather forecast or radar alone.
Time-lapse length (30 fps):
37 seconds and 13 frames.
