2011-06-10 237 v2 Wales Snowdonia clouds over Harlech

I saw these clouds forming over Harlech and the area to its south while I was walking along the edge of Tremadog bay.

In order to get the clouds to come out well I had to stop down quite a lot, and I needed Photoshop to get the shadow patterns on the land back again! But I liked the dramatic effect of the cloud masses presumably forming over the land as warm air off Cardigan Bay was being pushed higher by the mountains behind Harlech.

The object that looks like a shark's fin in the foreground is a buoy!
