Loks like a nimbostratus virga, an CB incus but first one should appear in warm conditions, sure snow showers & CB incus, great photo indeed!

An uncharacteristic photo of South Wales looking bleak, miserable & desolate! 'Everyday is like Sunday...'

That's better! However I find the best photos taken in South Wales are ones that show the North Devon coast in the distance, depicting that no matter how bad things are, there's always hope on the horizon.

Great picture Sonja. I saw a similar sight when there were snow showers around. Would this have been the same day?

Saw a documentary on BBC2 once about the MEGA-TSUNAMI that will happen when a part of one of the canary island volcanoes falls into the sea, the special effects were nowhere near as impressive as this photo, love it!

Yeah I saw this driving in to Porthcawl - probably one of the most amazing skyscapes I've ever see. This is a great photo and I'm glad someone captured it, but the actual sight in full colour was even more amazing!

Yeah it does. From the thumbnail I thought that it was a massive wave with a heck of a lot of spray.
