Ominous Clouds

AA Pic of the Week 125 w

I could not resist the temptation to get my camera out for this as I was having a coffee in the new Western Harbour area of Malmö where there used to be an enormous shipyard. Now it is full of innovative and interesting buildings with a distinct international feel to it. We all needed a good, strong coffee the day after my brother's birthday party. In Bar Italia I had the best Latte of my life so far.

What you see in the picture is the bridge, part of a link including bridge, tunnel and man-made island, between Malmö in Sweden and Copenhagen in Denmark. But the dominating feature is the rain cloud, which, together with the water, makes up one solid mass of grey-blue with only two dots of orange on the water. So had a fisherman not put out his net there, this photo would have been very close to monochrome.

That is a spectacular photo...did you get wet in the end?

Oreneta - Thank you. No, we just watched it from a safe distance, but I believe quite a few Danes got wet later!

Spectacular cloud - to match the great coffee!

LadyFi - Exactly, a tad frothy!
