I was going through some photos this morning to find something to post about, and found these pix of a cloud formation in Manitoba sometime in July. I recall I was going to send them to TheWeatherNetwork to identify (haven't sent yet) beyond cumulous or cumulonimbus. The clouds were to the east of me mid-afternoon and I don't know if the clouds were forming or had already dumped their load of rain. Pretty fantastic formation.

As per the Manitoba government website about the marsh (my photos, their text)
Delta Marsh is an extensive freshwater coastal wetland at the southern end of Lake Manitoba. It stretches from Lynchs Point in the west to St. Ambroise in the east. The protected portion of the Delta Marsh Wildlife Management Area encompasses 8,125 hectares. These protected lands are free from logging, mining, hydroelectric, oil and gas development as well as other activities that could significantly and adversely affect habitat. The total size of the wildlife management area is 11,000 hectares.
