Summer clouds

Twin-engine taking off from our runway SSOQ.

Well, you all know we're right in the middle of the rainy season. Therefor most sunsets are dramatic and the sky is mostly scattered with cumulus clouds; usually these have a puffy appearance, with noticeable vertical development and clearly defined edges. They are mostly precursors of the cumulonimbus clouds (lower picture) that often end in rain and thunderstorms making every late afternoon a dramatic spectacle.
