Cloud Strider

.
Just after sunset last night this giant rose up on top of the mountain.

I saw a long-haired celestial being seemingly striding toward the right, trying to catch his or her bright halo!
Do you see that? Or something different?

We all have fun with the sky at Sky Watch Friday.

It looks to me like that Egyptian wolf-god (what was his name, I can't remember). Either that or the Staypuff Marshmallow Man LOL.

I love clouds, such fun for the imagination.

We had the last few days without a cloud. One like this would be nice for some shade and a picture like yours.

Dina said...

Robin, Wepwawet? Good one. Yes!
(But I was at my nun friends' house looking at the cloud, so for them I suggested something less pagan.)

VP, but it seems the best clouds only come out at sunset when you don't need shade anymore.

Oh in thumbnail I thought it was some kind of tornado erupting. :-)

Large creature crossing picture for sure. Great cloud shot, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

There's a giant there with a rather menacing attitude. I hope he was happier when he neared his objective ;-)

That's the fun with clouds- I see an animal with antlers galloping and turning its head toward the right

Reminds me of the "keep on truckin" logos from when I was in high school.

I must admit that I see ash approaching,but then we are rather taken with the subject at the moment...

PS Thank you for the comment - I'll return to the subject sometime next month :-)

Really interesting cloud formation!

Kay said...

I do! I do! I see it! What fun, Dina!

spacedlaw said...

There is a strider, or one of its legs is becoming a small animal with pointed nose and ears (a fox or panda?)

moneythoughts said...

The cloud is by its shape alone impressive. And, when I first looked at it, I saw nothing in it, but rather had a feeling. My feeling was that this was the kind of cloud that Moses stood in front of when he came down from Mt. Sinai with the laws.

Reader Wil said...

It looks like one of the giants on the Hardangervidda in Norway!
Thanks for your wishes for Queen's Day! Nice to meet two Dutch women! Please wish them God's blessing!
Shabbat Shalom!
