Being from the UK myself i know for a fact we get a great deal of clouds, so if this was to happen anywhere it would be in the UK so i believe this is real! Good shot!

I cant believe you twats are really going to waste my time with this photo. This looks like my two month old son whipped open my laptop and began whirling his dick around on the mouse pad while playing with photoshop. If your going to try and finagle a good photo using photoshop at least make it believable so you don't waste five minutes of my life i cant get back. Its boggles my mind there is even a thread about whether this is real or not. Leave it to the UK folks

at first i thought photoshop but there are a few photos on here of the same thing..unless all the other people that have posted this same pic from different locations and varying degrees of quality are in on some big cloud wave photoshop conspiracy

Cirrus Kelvin-Helmholtz. Google it.

Drew Peacock's avatar

Drew Peacock Oct 18, 2011 Rating: 4

Not cirrus though, these are unusually at stratocumulus level, it was pretty windy around that time, 45-50kt at that level, cloud bases were about 3000ft and there was a temperature inversion around 5000ft. Perfect sky-surfing weather.

I didn't believe it either when I first saw a shot of a formation like this. But knowing that it's real is awesome.

That sky scene was totally real that evening. I have a rubbish low-res picture on my phone of that sky taken at about 4.45pm from the NT carpark at croyde as I was getting changed that is identical. The clouds looked like that for about 10 minutes or so until they morphed into a different shape. Unless I'd seen that with my own eyes, I would accept the Photoshop claimers.

Photoshop. Lame. Next picture please. You're insulting everybody's intelligence by saying this is natural. Or maybe intelligence is lacking in your town.

Are you guys seriously buying this??? Three waves! Three f*&king waves!!! One wave would be skeptical, two would be preposterous, but three!!! Intelligence IS lacking, and apparently its pandemic.

Don't worry about the PhotoShop dicks Andy. They clearly have no idea about the science of waves and the intricate interaction of wind and water. Cracking shot. Thanks for sharing it.
