This strange looking cloud was coming out of the East going in a Westerly direction. The Pacific ocean is just a few miles west and usually the clouds roll in from that direction so that made this a most unusual scene. The cloud hung low over the water which is typical.

Just beauuuuuuuuuuuutiful !!
Like a stairway across the sky !!
May be Hands anderson would have written a Fairy Tale if he had seen this... a stairway across the sky and a Prince travelling on a Horseback to save a Princess kept as a prisoner by a wicked witch in a Castle in the Sky!
Thank you Jerry for firing my imagination !!
Wonderful capture and note here !

The cloud formation provides an excellent compositional element, and you were lucky to be in a good position to catch this curve. Since the subject is the cloud, black and white was a smart choice.
