Aliens Spotted Over Ventoux!
Having posted my shot of a storm cloud over Mont Ventoux recently, I was reminded of this shot that I took last summer.
Apparently this classic flying saucer cloud effect is caused by nimbus cloud getting caught in a whirlwind at high level. Strangely I'd read about this in the newspapers only a couple of days before and how such photographs have traditionally tricked people into believing in imminent alien invasion (more convincing in black and white). And then just a few days later I went and saw one!
