Clouds North Fife August 12th

Shower over Newburgh North Fife. This weather has been going on for quite a while, dramatic skyscapes, heavy but short downpours countered with warm sunny interludes. Not unpleasant but frustrating for farmers with grain to be harvested.

August 12th. Wonderful cloud formations over Dundee and the River Tay, full of energy and on the boil.

The Book of Clouds.
See the sky as you never have before. Using a series of his awe-inspiring images, photographer and scientist John Day - who has a Ph.D. in cloud physics and is known round the world as "The Cloudman" - introduces us to earth's great skyscape. His spectacular portfolio of pictures captures a variety of cloud forms and shapes, ranging from cottony-soft cumulus clouds to frightening, whirling funnels, as well as a number of optical effects, such as coronas and halos, seen in the heavens above. A magnificent cloud chart; an explanation of clouds formation; hints on forecasting, observing, and photographing clouds; and his "Ten Reasons to Look Up" teach us to use our inner eye to really perceive those familiar fleeting forms.
