Strong storms started early on August 13. By 1:30 p.m., when I was in Satellite Beach, a magnificent shelf cloud was bearing south.
Beachgoers took their time to leave the beach in the face of the ominous arcus cloud. I couldn’t resist waiting for it and shooting as many photos as possible, given its delicate layers.
