    The pictures of the mammatus clouds are spectacular – great contrast in the subjects. But, the clouds themselves appear to be a little too well defined which might suggest there’s been some extra post-work done one them. They look graphically striking; but not necessarily natural.

    Give me a photo editing software such as adobe photo shop or some other graphic program and I can make a fake opicture like this as well. Nothing but folley so put on ur filters against folley!

    I can assure you, clouds like these do indeed appear sometimes. I saw some in Tennessee last year. I was absolutely flabbergasted. They were so unlike anything I have ever seen in the sky.
    Below is a link to some recently photographed in New York.

    “These are mammatus or mammatoculus clouds that formed over Hudson County and New York City this evening following a heavy thunderstorm. “

    They are for real! As a Photoshop expert of 19 years, I assure you that this can not be easily recreated in a photo editing software. Perhaps the photographer bounced the levels up to show greater contrast in the lights and darks thus giving a more dramatic photo. But they are indeed real.
