Weird Cloud Formations

Weird cloud formations
God's creation, especially nature, has always been a source of inspiration for photographers and creatives to look at things differently. Seeing different color leaves, different shapes and sizes, different terrains & textures, and then look at how the "normal" state of any one of those things changes (water is not always blue, leaves are not always green, etc.) teaches us all to look beyond the obvious. It teaches us to appreciate beauty and be thankful for diversity.

Clouds, in particular, are amongst God's creation that we could stare at for minutes & hours on end. They present us with different shapes that foster creativity and imagination at a very young age. All the sentimental mushy mushy stuff aside, some of cloud formations are just plain weird & bizarre.

Cloud formations such as mammatus or lenticular among others, are perfect examples of how intricate and different nature can be.

In this post, we take a look at some amazing photographs of the weirdest cloud formations that you’ll ever see, which are destined to inspire you and at minimum awe you. The halo Moscow cloud I covered a few weeks ago also falls into this category and inspired me to look further into other cloud formations and bring them to you. In the process, I have accumulated quite a number of photographs; but shouldn't list them all. Instead, I've selected a few below (see slide show) for your viewing pleasure.

I invite you to click on any of the images to view the source.

With the wide-spread use of cameras, I invite you to submit your online images.  ▣
