Upton, Wyoming, Shelf Cloud

After patiently awaiting storms in a Moderate Risk area near the Black Hills of South Dakota, we decided that the stratocumulus cloud deck would likely never break and that storm formation would be unlikely there prior to sunset. We thus headed west into Wyoming and intercepted a couple of storms - one near Devil's Tower dissipated as we approached it, while this storm, farther south near the town of Upton, formed this eerie shelf cloud with a teal-tinted core beyond. Taken June 11, 2013.
