Gnarly Mammatus Madness by MichaelBandy
Now I know the location is overshot. I never fail to get at least one comment about this on 500px. But I don’t care. It is an amazing spot and an awesome old Bristlecone. It is overshot for a good reason.
The first shot I edited and already posted can be seen here: http://ift.tt/1f6kIcT
This shot I am posting here today was taken toward the end of the sunset. Roman shouted out that there were Mammatus clouds forming above us and to the North. I ran over and shot this comp handheld at around ISO 800 or so. The clouds were crazy and the likelihood of ever getting to see Mammatus clouds in California is pretty small. I was stunned and excited at the same time.
A great evening spent with good friends doing what I love to do while nature puts on an amazing show. Sounds like a hell of a good day. And it was!
