I took this one in my back yard a few years back. A very nasty storm had just passed by and the lighting was pretty cool. Notice the mammatus  clouds and also the blue sky in the lower right.

Ocala,
   That is a very good picture!  You should submit it to the Cloud Appreciation Society for picture of the month.  I am not sure if you need to be a member or not.

Cool!!  We had those a few weeks back after a nasty line of storms passed through.  The sun was breaking through an open area to the South and at the same time we had a double rainbow to the NE and it was near sunset.  Unfortunately I was out in the service truck on a call and did not have my camera with me.

I get those out here during the fall at sunset but they're usually pinkish and not as vivid. Still, very cool to see.
