Begun this cold front has!
I’m the person that took this pic. I was photographing aircraft from the end of the runway at Vancouver International Airport. During breaks in aircraft landings, I took pics of other things. I was at Iona beach, the sun was going down, and I started taking pics of clouds. To be honest, I did not see the resemblance to Yoda until I downloaded the image later. When I saw it, I went, “Holy Crap! It’s Yoda!” No photo shopping was used at all. Totally natural!
Yoda’s Cloud City is food for conspirarists.
I have found my new religion.
But what has made Yoda interested in Vancouver?
hah man thats scary just how much it looks like him
OMG SELL IT ON EBAY TeH FORCE IS REAL-zorZ!!11!!11!
Weak your grasp of Yoda grammar is.
Photo shopped or not–this is awesome!!!
Evaporation is the path to the dark side. Evaporation leads to clouds. Clouds leads to rain. Rain leads to suffering.
Much anger in this cloud there is.
Scared, I am.
Brilliant, but is it real or Photo-Shopped a tad? Never know, theses days! Still – makes a nice change from the alleged “Jesus” pics that folk claim to be able to see in just about any old object of late.
It’s neat because I used to look at him all the time when i was little.
Likely a dead pulse thunderstorm. Updraft lifts moisture straight up, turns into downdraft and precipitation, choking storm and removing the updraft base but leaving the remnants of the convective cloud.
