Summer Storm Clouds

We sure have had a lot of clouds that look like this over the past couple of weeks.  You would think for sure that a big storm was coming, but most of these storms have passed us by.  Such was the case with this particular formation, which entertained us for most of our drive back from Duluth just over a week ago.  We watched this fascinating bank of clouds on the horizon directly ahead of us for at least an hour and a half on our drive, and it barely got any closer as we drove.  It must have been tracking up the shore at about the same speed as we were driving.  We thought for sure that we would eventually catch up to it and be driving through some rain, but that never happened.  I stopped just north of Tofte, MN and made this picture from the side of the road with my Tamron 150-600 lens.
