Cloudspotting in Tasmania

David took this lovely sunset photo from our place last month. Many people in our area did the same, as the local paper was full of readers' similar photos the following week. We have seen some amazing cloud formations since we moved to Tasmania. From strange low-lying tufts of cloud clinging to the hillsides to lenticular formations that look like flying saucers, the variety is amazing. Living a fair way up a hill, we're often inside a cloud or looking down on one in the valley. I must get around to reading a book called 'The Cloudspotter's Guide' that was recommended by my manager a few years ago, so I know a bit more about what I'm admiring in the sky.

  1. I think this might be a "venticular" cloud formation. It's quite rare. This is a stunning photo, Susan.
