The Mysterious Cloud

This occurrence happened last year, but I never posted the images. I noticed a weird light through the window, and once I stepped closer I was more then surprised to see this cloud hovering above the city. Now, Mostar is not known for any tornados or something like that, so I wasn't scared when I saw this. But still, the glowing light that came from it was more then intriguing.

The fact that the cloud was so close to the earth was even more curious. I quickly grabbed my camera and snapped some images, two of which I chose to present to you today.

Nature can be weird sometimes.

  5. I would be tempted to say it is a lenticular cloud but whatever it is it's impressive.

  45. Wonderful photos! Lenticular from the mountains, I am guessing, but so odd that it is dark! Beautiful and a little worrisome, I am sure when it was happening!
