    The inverted cloud comma in the upper lefthand corner is almost tornadic.

    Great photo.

    The cloud formation on the upper left corner looks a little like croissant. I wonder if you noticed that when taking the picture.

    In 1982 during a boat ride in Canada, around sunset three was a cloud formation that looked, to me, like a flotilla. I took some photos. Sometime later when the pictures were developed and printed (remember that?), that formation looked like a dove in profile, wings spread in flight.

    I could still make out the flotilla I pictured first, but when I took the photos I didn’t visualize a dove in the formation. I thought that rather peculiar. On the other hand, there’s seldom a chance to review random grouping and make out patterns in them.

    @CSK: Maybe they were performing “The Tempest” at the Shakespeare festival.
