Put a lid on it.....!!


On a clear day if you are walking, biking or driving down the West Coast road you may be able to see
Rottnest Island which is 20klms off the coast in the Indian Ocean. On Wednesday when we were walking along the coast I noticed the oddest thing!! The sky was as usual, immense and wonderfully blue, except....that there was a huge cloud almost the entire size of the island hovering above Rottnest, it really did look quite bizarre!! I have to say it was a very attractive cloud, dark underneath and fluffy on top, beautifully shaped and perfect for Skywatch Friday.. p.s. if you pull the first picture right in, you can juuuuust see the white of the island lighthouse to the right .....!!

  2. Interesting. Maybe the island 'makes' its own weather.

    Nice color.

  3. Must be something about the land mass changing the atmosphere above it, it guess. Whatever it is it looks good.

  4. When I first opened up your site and saw the top photo I thought wow what a beautiful shot. Then I saw the second shot and understood what you meant by the cloud being strange. It appears to almost be attached to the island.

  13. I'm always suspicious of unnatural cloud activity - in my experience it often means bad weather! Even though it looks this good ...

  16. Great sky and sea. It reminds me of the time we spend in Newport Beach, California, each summer and looking out to see Catalina Island, 23 miles (about 35 km) to the west.

  18. I was just by the sea taking pictures this morning, the wind was strong and the view not good as your, but I enjoyed it so much...

  19. Very odd indeed - maybe the heat from the land mass created the cloud above?
