SkyWatch: Mountain Cloud

This shot was taken on the road from Jeddah to Makkah. I thought it was interesting how the clouds seemed to mimic the shape of the mountains below.

  1. That is interesting. The cloud formation looks like another mountain, one covered with snow – which I’m sure would be unusual in that part of the world!

    Very well spotted. I’ve been off the net for a while so catching up. I just noticed you won one of those awards. I was a voter,well done.

  3. Indeed the cloud does seem to want to camouflage itself as a mountain. Good one, Susie!

    I’m echoing what everyone else has said but it’s true, it does look just like another mountain!

    I think you are onto something Susie. I notice quite often that the clouds seem to mimic the ground below. Great post.

    I have noticed this about clouds, too. They are very obliging that way. This is a wonderful photo.

  12. You are right the cloud is like the mountain. Beautiful.

    it does mimic the mountains. Nice cloud photo.

  14. Linnea says:

    That’s right…a mountain in the sky. Are your roads and their surfaces really that perfect looking? Wow!

    • This road is actually quite nice and it is probably one of the most well-traveled roads in Saudi Arabia, since almost all religious pilgrims arrive in Jeddah and travel by road to Makkah. Because of that, it is well maintained. I haven’t been outside of Jeddah too much, but many of Jeddah’s roads are in need of repair.

    Well spotted, it really does echo the mountains.

  16. Jan says:

    Love the picture and remember your comment that you are never driving when you snap these road shots!!!!!

    • Good memory, Jan! Yes, since women are not permitted to drive here (I believe it’s the ONLY country in the world that is so), many of my photos are taken from a moving car!

  17. Carver says:

    I love this shot. The cloud does look like part of the mountain range.

    Yes, well noticed!
    Sorry I haven’t been commenting much lately – combination of life circumstances. SDP has had a 3rd birthday and you’re invited to the party!
