Lee-wave clouds
28 mm wide-angle shot, taken about one hour after the previous picture.

The photo shows a series of lee-wave clouds looming over the Rhone valley in Switzerland. The peculiar, oval-shaped cloudlet on top constantly disappeared and reappeared in the same spot every one or two minutes. This breathtaking scenery brought to mind some of the painted backgrounds from Walt DISNEY's imperishable music film Fantasia. The dark area in the left of the photo is an effect caused by the polaroid filter.
