Gorazd,

Very nice image, it is always amazing how far the mammatus cloud spreads from the top of a huge thunderstorm. On the farm where I grew up we called the top of such thunderstorm clouds anvil heads, the thunderstorm and its cloud top which forms in the direction of the winds at that level always reminded us of the anvils that we used to pound and bend hot metal into whatever shape we needed for what we were making. Thanks for bringing back those good memories for me.
