When out and about, I often notice bizarre cloud formations overhead.Walking home after leaving my vehicle at our local mechanic's a couple of months ago, I rushed back to get my spare camera stored in it, when I saw how that morning's clouds had developed...

...and a few minutes later the 'flatfish' had been dismembered into flesh, ribs, and spine.

Very cool patterns formed by the clouds in shot 1.

the contrail in shot 2 makes for an interesting subject too.

Very interesting. It makes you wonder how that first formation was formed. It looks somewhat like to contrails passing through a lenticular cloud. However, lenticular clouds only form over mountain peaks and are much heavier than this.

The second shot seems to have a lot going on. I, also, like the breakup of the jet contrail.

Good work.

I get the feeling that you have spent a lot of time lying in the grass on your back looking at clouds to see what you can find in them.

Hi Alan,

I love both shots, but perhaps the first one is my preferred one.

Good that you rushed back to get the shot!

Amazing how clouds change so quickly, isn't it!!

regards

Paul

edit.... I just want to comment on the surreal shapes and patterns of photo 1 - I think you gave it a very good title / description, Alan! Well done!!
