I had hoped to get some monsoon shots before the season passed so I headed up the Catalina Highway. I ended up having to chase the clouds because of course, on the day I had free, there wasn't too much monsoon action. No problem though, there's always something worth shooting up on Mount Lemmon.

#1: The setting sun was creating some great textures on the rocks

The clouds in #2 are strange.
I've seen clouds like these only once in my life. Must be 30 years ago...

Thank you for sharing

They're called mammatus or mammatocumulus clouds. We get them pretty often during monsoon season here. They're pretty dramatic, especially at sunset.
