Looks like stormy weather is comming
it might be my angle, but it looks much more like a gust front/outflow boundary/roll cloud than a shelf cloud....
edit: upon further examining, i dont think it looks like a roll cloud
wow, a lot of those pictures are from you and are superb!!!!
i just googled arcus cloud (am i a little embarrassed to be a meteorologist and have never heard of an arcus cloud? yes)
but wikipedia said this:
"An arcus cloud is a low, horizontal cloud formation associated with the leading edge of thunderstorm outflow (i.e., the gust front). Roll clouds and shelf clouds both are types of arcus clouds."
with that answer, i feel much better about my thoughts. i still think its a gust front/outflow boundary rather than a roll or a shelf cloud.
its still a stunning picture!
oh! and i just realized you should have had your first les of the season!!! congrats man!
