[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this picture from our roof. Here it's rainy season and it's eastern sky. Gloomy weather but this formation of clouds attracted me.

* "Cumulus Congestus clouds" are a form of Cumulous cloud that can be based in the low or middle height ranges. They achieve considerable vertical development in areas of deep, moist convection.

* They are often characterized by sharp outlines and great vertical development.
* This is often a sign of rain may be accompanied by thunderstorms.

Hello Srikumar,
Beautiful photo of these clouds. The dark bushes in the foreground make it even more dramatic. Good DOF.
