Salut Nicolas ,
Un N&B inhabituel de ta part . Mais une capture extra de ce ciel fabuleux .

Bonjour, cher Nicolas,
C'est le moment de tourner un film d'épouvante avec ce ciel présentant des nuages lenticulaires venant assombrir la plaine.
Joli effet en noir et blanc.

Bonjour Nicou,

otra magnífica imagen donde el cielo es el protagonista, me gusta mucho el efecto visual de las nubes, parece sacado de una película de ciencia ficción, el blanco y negro favorece la imagen, bien hecho,

Buen fin de semana,


WOW, Nicolas, a small swirl in the sky, a marvelous unique sight of this phenomenon.
B&W probably due to light condition, but so well spotted and posted.
Au revoir,

amazing view

Hi Nicolas,
Sana has fotoğraflarından biri.
Gökyüzü muhteşem, özellikle gri tonlarıyla çok başarılı
Tebrik ediyorum.

Hello Nicolas,

You are lucky enough to capture it, just like painting, black and white make it another tone, an unique presentation.

warm regards,

Bonjour Nicolas

Superbes nuages arrondis qui contrastent avec les pins au premier plan, bonne décision de les poster en N&B. Quelle puissance!
Bon WE

Ciao Nicou, cielo fantastico, mai viste nuvole così, gran bel bianco e nero, splendida luce, bravo, buon week end, ciao Silvio

Amazing capture!! I love it in b/w as it gives it even more of a surreal feel to it. Very cool clouds! Thanks for sharing.

Spectaculaire et très bien rendu Nicolas ;)

Bonjour Nicolas,
Wow, what a spectacular photo, the shapes of the clouds look amazing here and the lighting is excellent too. The B&W emphasises the special shapes even better and even makes them look a little threatening to see hanging in the sky like this.

Salut Nicolas,
Extrordinaire vue avec ces nuages lenticulaires impressionnants, bon effet avec ce rendu en n&b, bravo pour cette prise et présentation.

Magnificent sky, and splendid clouds,
very good effect,
thank you
all the best

Hi Nicolas
This takes my breath away....
An amazing occurrence that startles the photographer with this wonderful phenomenon and significantly enhanced by the astonishing lenticular cloud formation which really emphasizing the distinctive shapes and contrast.

I think this could be easily mistaken for UFOs because of their saucer-like shapes. You've caught a special unnatural rare moment - a spectacular sight and how fortunate for you to have been there at just the right time. Marvelous.
Best wishes

Bonjour Nicolas,

What a strange phenomenon!
The mini tornado looks just like a flying saucer, swirling rapidly in the sky!
It's easy to understand how it could be mistaken for a UFO!
I'm glad you were able to include a small part of the land for it helps us to assess the size and the scope of this strange occurrence.

Have a lovely w/e and I hope you are not whisked away by some strange, alien craft, Bev :-)

Bonjour Nicolas,

On dirait deux soucoupes volantes superposées dans un ciel qui se demande bien sur quel bord il va virer. Un noir et blanc de toute beauté.



Hello Nicolas,
You captured a strange and beautiful weather phenomenon looking like three or four UFOs flying on top of each other. The black and white treatment makes this look like a picture from a science fiction movie from the 1950's.
Kind regards,

  • Great

Salut Nicolas,

Wonderful tonal range and superb motion blur of the clouds that gives a surreal effect. Good sharpness and excellent lighting contrasts and graphism. The silhouettes at right add interest. Tfs!

Hello Nicolas

A superb capture of this unusual meteorological phenomenon! I also applaud your choice of black and white for a shot of this type. Great work.

Bonjour Nicolas Très étrange phénomène nuageux qui se prête à un 'remake' de "Close Encouter with the Third Kind" par Stephen Spielberg! L'énorme vaisseau spatial sur le point d'atterrir de côté-ci de la montagne! Les dieux et les vents vous sont favorables pour l'extra-ordinaire! Amicalement.

Hi Nicolas
now this is pretty unreal! something special from Mother Nature. It looks beautiful, but also looks kind of scary haha, as if something bad is about to be unleashed on the people below :)

its a unique shot of cloud formations, I bet you're happy with this one. I know I would be. cheers

Hello Nicolas,
This is an impressive weather phenomenon caught in your lens. I like your choice of B&W to display this somewhat scary event.
