I have never in my life seen something like this:

Image
The Wall 29698 by Thomas, on Flickr

Cold air was sweeping in from the north (=left) and formed this unique cloud band when it pushed away the clouds to the south. I tried a pano shot because this phenomenon was reaching from horizon to horizon, but it didn't get any more impressive (although the resulting psd-file had over a GigByte of data :shock: ).

Had some tough time enhancing the contrast in just the right areas.
Enjoy (2k version @ flickr. Just click through the image)!

Did Ansell Adams say "use f8 and be there", looks like you did both, unique shot.

Something similar from March last year, though not as good a pic as Thomas's.

Trying again - this was the same kind of cloud and like Thomas I found it impressive.

Don't know why the earlier post disappeared, unless it was too big. In which case, apologies. And it still isn't as good a shot as Thomas's. I just wanted a pic of it - any pic.

Yeah, it was f/8.0 because the Nikon 28-300 VR I had with me is a little weak at its widest settings. So I had to take care of the characteristics of the lens that I had on my D300 at that moment.
Nice you like it!

That's a nasty low moving in, very nice shot of it. I saw one once that touch the ground (fog) it was literally "a wall" of fog!
I was half expecting some zombies to appear!

Beautiful shots....impressive sky.

Reminds me of the movie "Independence day", almost expecting so see an UFO coming out of the sky somewhere.
