Saturday Photo Hunt - Clouds

My 64th
This Week's Theme: Clouds
SPH Headquarters ~ The Other 63




I took this photo while traveling to a family reunion. I noticed a dark line in the clouds and I couldn't figure out what it was. I snapped the photo to show hubby later. He couldn't see them because he was driving. Any suggestions as to what the dark line might have been?

That's a lovely shot. I see telephone lines but couldn't figure out what those dark shades are.

Lovely things to see on a road trip :)

Tere {Blessings in Life} said...

I often see dark clouds floating low in the morning sky and it usually rains in the afternoon.

Mine's up! Hope you can visit all four of them.

Aileni said...

There's nothing wrong with your picture - they are lovely clouds. Many thanks for your charming comment.

Heart of Rachel said...

I'm back to let you know that I have a fun Mommy Spa tag for you.

philos said...

Hmm... looks like its about to rain to me

Leslie said...

Your photo reminds me of a Turner painting - the same clouds. :)

LibertyBelle said...

I just posted here but can't see my post- so am trying again. Sorry if it comes up twice!
Your photo reminds me of a Jobim song called Djindi- It starts like this:
Vast, so vast is the sky!"
Lovely photo
Happy weekend

Hi Tisha. My dog Reba and I both love your photo. Beautiful clouds. They come in so many different shapes, sizes, formations so are always nice to see.

It's a lovely shot. I am sure an airplane could be blamed on the dark lines :)

Napaboaniya said...

Along that long stretch of road, it seems like a wonderful array of clouds are lining the road :)

eastcoastlife said...

hmmm... looks like black smoke.... I can't tell.
Happy weekend!

Zoey said...

No idea at all, but the others seems like possible explanations.

I can't help on the line but it is a dramatic photo! Have a great weekend

FamiliaKhuletz said...

Great, great shot!

I also have posted my cloud pictures. Please check it out in these blogs:

Hope you can hop by if you have some time. Thanks a lot. Happy weekends to you!

Hootin' Anni said...

Perhaps reflection off your window? Or is the window open? LOL You got me.

My clouds are posted, a bit different in 'take' this week, stop by if you can and see what you think! Have a great weekend.

IRISHKAT said...

Very pretty!

Sarge Charlie said...

Maybe it is smoke

the teach said...

Don't know, Tisha! Maybe it's smoke like Sarge said. :)

Baker Watson said...

My guess is that those are clouds that just happen to be lower and darker. It looks like smoke but in a larger view they look more like clouds to me due to their rounded shapes.

Great cloud shots. They remind us that there are so often opportunities for great photo's even while riding down the road.

Yen said...

I love that shot! Perfect for the theme;-)

Mitey Mite said...

A low-flying plane in bad need of an oil change? I don't have a clue, but it's great that you got it on film.

gaj38 said...

very strange, great photo!
thanks for visiting mine :-)

Kim said...

Great photo! Once I enlarged the photo I could see power lines and then the dark cloud above it. It seems to be that it was a thinner cloud that has the shadow of the bigger cloud above it on it. Make sense?

Thanks for visiting mine!

Happy Photo Hunting!

Akelamalu said...

Are they telephone cables???

Good photo though even with the lines.

Thanks for your comment on Sophie's birthday memory, I appreciate it. x

Babs (Beetle) said...

I noticed that before I read your post. How strange! Could be a shadow of the cloud above maybe.

Nita said...

Beautiful shot! Have a great weekend!

Cheers,
Nita

Aiyah Nonya said...

Maybe a plane just past by earlier ?
But it is still a beautiful shot.
Thanks for dropping by mine and have a great weekend

Mo said...

clearly it's the outline of the mother ship about to abduct some hapless cows

dmeemai said...

WOW! Very nice cloud formation, makes for a great painting!

you didn't mean the pole lines, did you?

have to agree with Mitey Mite. seems like a low-flying plane in bad need of an oil change! LOL

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

That's a tricky one! I haven't a clue. Great shot though!!

Here's mine . . .

Linda said...

Absolutely beautiful but as you know, I do have a thing for clouds!

storyteller said...

Sorry to hear you caught a ‘stomach bug’ and hope you’re feeling better soon. I enjoyed the beautiful blue setting off your clouds today ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Shawie said...

wow! that's a great capture! but that dark line caught my attention at first... looked like a smoke from the car, lol!

Ladykli said...

Very mysterious. Perhaps it was from a passing semi? Great photo anyway.

Cheryl Wray said...

Wow! Cool picture!!

sallyacious said...

At first I thought it might be shadows, but it turned the upper parts of the clouds behind it a different color. I'm guessing it's smoke or exhaust. Nice work: a cloud photo and a puzzle!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Titania Starlight said...

I have always loved to watch clouds and find big puffy animals in them . :o)

Yvy's said...

cant figure those lines out but at one glance, it just looks like 'dirt' on a hardcopy of a photo. ;) lovely all the same. thanks for stopping by.

Bubba's Sis said...

Power lines?

Amazing Gracie said...

You'd need ol' Sherlock for this one! Great photo, though. I love clouds!
~~~Blessings~~~

Larry said...

Did you take the photo from inside your car? I always get window reflection smudge prints when I take photos without putting the window down. Then again maybe it's just a black cloud -- yikes the possibilities are endless!

Tina said...

it all looks rather spooky to me i must say hmmmm !

Desert Songbird said...

If that were around my end of the country, I'd say it's either smoke from a fire or smog and pollution.
