The Rock by billyboy

Something now completely different from me…

We drove to Gibralter with some friends. Having never been there before and had only seen pictures and tales of apes, I didn’t quite know what to expect. But I never could have dreamed I’d see this cloud just hanging out atop the rock as the morning mist rose. Don’t know whether or not it’s a common occurence, but it was a sight I’ll never forget. This is one awesome place and I’m glad I had the camera. Shot on 35mm film, negative scanned to PS.

    Thanks Pete. Your comments are much nicer than the ones I got when I rejoined my friends after making them wait in the car while I walked half a kilometer from the road to get the shot. I won’t repeat those here!

    I’ve always wanted to go to Gibraltar. That cloud is incredible! Was it a harbinger of stormy weather, or just an unusual formation? Really nice capture!

    Thanks aphoto, Hiroko, Munch + Case! Yeah, I thought “OK, let’s go… the sky’s falling!”, but it turned out to be a beautiful day. Don’t even know if they have bad days in Gibralter. The Brits have total control and just don’t let that happen!
