    For those of you who have always wondered where clouds come from I have found the source for you.

    Extensive research indicated that there was a hole in the ground in Southeastern Washington State that is a natural cloud generator. Scientists seem to have no explanation for the phenomenon, but local residents claim "it's that damn nukyaler plant!"

    Whatever you believe, I present you with...

    Oh yes, I do agree! This one's ...

    ... robbing me of my idea that the cloud factory is near to my own home-town (which is in Germany, so nowhere near where you are, bug).

    A pity I never took photos at the time (the eighties), when I came past "my" cloud factory.

    And this is one that makes totally obvious that wide angle shots do have their virtues!!!!!

    It fascinates me... this one does... yes!

    Very cool shot. I wish I had more time to wander about and find cools things such at what you have here.


    I always enjoy your shots.

    Hehehe, no fire. It's the steam plume from the WNP-1 Nuclear Power plant cooling towers.

    Dew- I waited 3 weeks for the right sky so the plume & clouds matched naturally.

    I drive by this every day going to/from work. Didn't have to wander around at all, just follow the road. :)

    Which is one more reason why you should always keep your camera with you!

    Great shot!
