Amazing Wall Cloud Picture

I very much want to take pictures like this. I hoping to hit the plains states this next storm season!

    That is indeed a beautiful photograph, but what is depicted is not a wall cloud. What you’re seeing is a “shelf cloud”. It’s the leading edge of a storm created by cool air lifting warm moist air. It is almost always associated with “robust” straight line winds.
