Clouds and Reality vs CG

I came via this image via Twitter (thanks Tom O'Reilly) showing some pretty amazing cloud formations, see the article on WIRED. Apart from it being a very cool piece of meteorology it highlights for me that clouds are one of the key things I think peoples idea in their heads of what they look like is very narrow compared to actual reality. Thus I feel clouds are something that you probably need to play safe with in a CG environment to not have the viewer questioning their reality...
