I was out shopping this evening and took a photo of this cloud formation... //www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=30341
The photo was taken at 8:39pm tonight. I only took the photo cause it had an unusal formation to it and my 7 year old had said to me "Mommy look an angel" and then pointed out the cloud formation.

The story doesn't end there I was just watching the news and there was an accident on another road on the other side of the trees you see in the photo, and paramedics that arrived on the scene reported the time as 8:38pm of the death of a 3 year old boy.

Is that an angel in the photo? Take your time and look at it closely.

I thought it looked more like a figure carrying a young child. Interesting story.

I can see that to in it when I look...kind of freaky isn't it?

I snapped quite a few photos of that cloud formation and I am here looking at them now.

It's a cumulus cloud, caused by a lot of hot air...

Looks like a giant monster facing the right side of the picture... The head is pretty well defined, with the nose and chin clearly visible and a big afro hair cut (hair is receeding a little however). Then he has a huge stomach (like my beer drinking neighbor) and big arms and huge legs. His lower legs and feet are behind the hills.

Or, it could just be a cloud, I'm not sure. :D Good capture! You should use photoshop to turn it into a real monster, that might be fun.

it looks like the stay-puffed marshmallow man to me!

looks like an easter island head with an afro a stay-puffed belly and a set of tiny wings and !NO ARMS!?! Strangely shaped cloud isn't it?

Funny how many people see many things. "C'mon, that was just all cloud talk, man." Jimbo on the Simpsons

The cloud is interesting but if you look at the top left it looks to me like a pair of eye's

Looks more like big bird from Seseme Street to me

I think it looks like a snow man. They all look like snowmen ... I'm from Canada.

Mag ... drool drool drool. I like you angel better.

Take another look.... Not only can you see the angel, you can see the angel coddling the dead child (silloute of childs head is left of angels head) as it rises to the heavens.

Just had to tell everyone...I submitted that angel cloud to the local cbs affliate this morning and I already heard back from them. They are going to make it a pic of the day next month.

Clouds often make us think of images we want to see
