Wow! Awesome capture. What Tracy said, they are also known as Tsunami Clouds. What a rarity it is to see clouds like this. Clouds like this were spotted over Seattle somewhere between Feb and April. Hopefully we see more like this.

Wow, I saw the same cloud last night! It looked like a picture of cartoon ocean waves. I looked it up and it's called a Kelvin-Helmholtz Wave Cloud. AMAZING!
