This is my first proper thread (apart from intro thread), so hello all.
I enjoy photography - I take thousands of photos a month of lots of different things. When there's even a vaguely beautiful sunset with nice clouds
and colours shining, I'll take a photo or two of it. As I have done with the photo that this thread is about.
Firstly I'll tell you about the area it was photographed.
The photo below was taken at 6:51 PM nearing the end of summer in the South-West of Western Australia, warm climate somewhat similar to the wine
growing regions of France. The clouds pictured are likely a few kilometers inland from the coast. The stuff pictured is facing west, toward the beach.
Edit: Below I've added a circle and a line to make the object on the original pic easier to locate.
This picture shows something interesting along the band of cloud that runs through the near middle, another little red-blood cell shaped cloud is in
front of it. It's almost the stereotypical UFO shape lol. That's why it strikes my interest - I'm not claiming this to be any sort of UFO, I'd be
pretty chuffed it it were to be though. It's got the texture of a cloud at first look but the shape is what gets me.
Upon realising the special cloud I selected the area in Corel Paintshop and done some stuff to it that changes the colour (can't remember what they
were called). The changes in colours of certain areas help distinguish the blob cloud from the rest. Sort of bringing out densities in a way, which
are clearly different from the cloud behind it.
Here's the zoom in on the object.
Below are the colour changes.
People will ask if it was visible when I took the photo, and my response is "no." It was not visible to me consciously when I took the picture, in
other words I did not notice it. Even if it was, I probably would've dismissed it as cloud as I don't wear my glasses when taking photos. I noticed
when I went home and put my photos on the computer. By the looks of the photo however, it was surely there.
The preview function when I'm making this post is not showing the images correctly, they're hosted on Photobucket. The img input says it's deleted or
moved - will try to get them to work.
Once again, not claiming this to be some ET thing, it's merely a unidentified object. I'd like some thoughts and opinions on this, even if it's going
to get über debunked to being a cloud or something lol.
