Strange clouds

Some weekends ago we came back from a walk and these rather peculiar clouds had collected above our village. It didn't rain...the sky just looked weird for a bit and then the clouds dispersed....
I don't think this is a particularly good photo, but I've never seen clouds like that before.



More on skies at Skywatch Friday.

Very strange clouds indeed. So black but I still see the blue behind them. Great shot.

They are really strange! Looks like cumulus - but impossible to say. Little bit scary looking....

That is really quite wonderful. Like a close up on for ex. human skin, where you cán make out the different cell structures. Cloud cells I would call this. Never seen anything like it.

Those are quite odd! I can't say that I've ever seen anything like them either.

They are strange looking.

Looks very 'other worldly'. I agree about the cells, it could almost be something out of a biology book.

Carver said...

It has a Radiographic effect(X-Ray). Look at the benzene-ring like link. Don't you think so? Or like a ghost of a woman. Where ever I get this concept of a ghost looking like that. lol. Better still, Psychedelic. No, am not high. Not on drugs. lol. It's really cool!

Indeed they are strange! I'd probably have hurried indoors if I saw them, just to be on the safe side...
