Nice Image Chris I am not far from that location as I photogrphed the turbines for Vattenfall a mammoth job all of 18 + mths
and I got there early this morning it’s a superb view
Marvellous capture. I like this much indeed!
By coincidence, today (12th May) I posted the following onto the CAS Forum page:-
From the BBC’s Weather Watchers website come three nice photo of Shelf Clouds.
I think, and I stand to be corrected on this, the name Shelf Cloud is another term for Roll Cloud.
Whatever, just enjoy.
Good shot, Johnny. I expected to see Clint Eastwood on the beach … but maybe next time :-)
JFI A roll cloud (volutus), differs from a shelf cloud as it is completely detached from other cloud features and known as a soliton, The most famous being The Morning Glory cloud.
Not just ‘a happy man’ – it looks just like me: my nose, my beard, and happy to have a little more on top… Nicely spotted!
Definitely a cloud for an aircraft to avoid severe turbulence! Nice to view, but from a safe distance.
Aside from being a coveted heart shaped cloud siting, this particular cloud had a very special meaning to Kathy and I in that it seemed like a gift from our beloved puppy Riley, who had recently passed on. We wrote more about that on my non-technical blog if you are curious about it; https://av8rdaslife.wordpress.com/2017/05/11/the-life-or-riley-an-epilogue/.
