Gibraltar Clouds

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 23 May 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The 426 metre high Rock of Gibraltar rises so steeply from the sea that it generates its own weather system with clouds constantly being formed at the top of the rock and then streaming away to leeward like the smoke from some kind of giant steam train.

The steam train came to my mind instantly, too. Or should it be opposite way?
