Barbadian Clouds

Science my ass! There's no way science could produce anything this magnificent...

I spent the entire day today on the beach...mostly in the water and despite my best efforts I still somehow managed to get a tan...

When I wasn't in the water - I was nestled quite comfortably under an umbrella and while staring off into "space", I became obsessed with the cloud formations that persisted throughout the day. I can't really explain it - but it almost seems as if the clouds actually rise up from the ground and/or the ocean rather than descend down from the sky... I've asked around and no one seems to be able to tell me why...perhaps it's because we're so close to the equator????

Here's just a sample of the cloud formations I saw today. I could swear I see Elmo in the last photo... No seriously...

    i'm thinking you're down there on some good barbadian shrooms!! becoming one with nature!!
    anyway don't the coluds seem like they are coming from the ground because the earth is round?? and maybe cause you're close to the equator??
