The cloud formations look spectacular, and quite massive, especially in comparison with the mountains below! Reminds me of those ufo-claimed photographs :P

Aah not too well! The first one was pretty easy, but the one yesterday was well...hell, sorta:S 3 questions, 20 points each, and you had to get at least 30 points to make it, I think I got maybe 15 or so.. I'll do better next time!

Cheers, there is a little creative licence taken in the title, but these clouds do normally only form in gale force winds over the mountains

Well I know nothing of cloud formations so I'll take your word for it. It was a great pic regardless.
