I like that Shelf Cloud one (The first two of your photos). Nice shots!
Rainbows are often a problem, too. I took these,My cameras are not very good at capturing snow ... it is ether blown out or overly dark
Now that's cool!With regards to the snow theme, anybody else seen 'snow trenches'?
I've been trying to find a photo of one which occurred on the footpath of the main road, a few years ago. It wasn't a spectacular one, just strange, as they usually are.
The first time I encountered one was back in the eighties, when we used to get more snow, more often, and it (along with others) was on the road mentioned above, but actually on the tarmac.
It was about four feet deep with straight sided walls, looking like it had been dug by man or machine; you could see the tarmac with it's light dusting of snow.
I had our dog with me (an old style alsatian with a wolfen body who stood as tall as a man on his hind legs) and we both jumped down into the trench.
After some wonderment and giddy glee, a little panic followed as neither of us could climb out, fingers and claws struggling for grip. I had to hump the dog up by his arse and then use him as an anchor for me to climb out.
Featured in my blog, but these were taken on a Fuji:

that was the night before the dawn, before the bubbles and tip had formed.

Those are all cool! Have you ever heard of "Cold Air Funnels"? These fool quite a few people that a tornado may be forming.Snow trench(?):

Ignore the jumble of snow and ice left by the snowplough (you'd think they'd tidy up after themselves ).
This is on the windward side of the fence and you can sort of see how a swirl has set up a stopped the snow from settling.

The windchill on that day was ruthless and both my pocket camera and phone died within minutes of pulling out.
Since you got me rummaging, how about a nearly-tornado?

I'd totally forgotten about that

The trees make the sunset.
Time for some Saharan sun:

Caused by sand blown up from Africa; the dog was intrigued:

One amongst several in that moment that I watched as they developed and disappeared. There's too many photos to choose from; I just grabbed the one I was on when I realized that were too many.
