Hier, nous avons eu des beaux nuages altocumulus


Mercredi soir, ma caméra a dormi à l'hôtel, (appareil-photo vilain !)
Il a oublié de me rappeler de l'emmener à la maison.
Je l'ai recueilli sur l'heure du déjeuner de jeudi et à ma surprise j'ai été accueilli par ce magnifique formation de nuage, Altocumulus Maquereau
Il y a un vieux dicton, "Le Ciel de Maquereau, le Ciel de Maquereau, Jamais long mouillé et jamais long sec." ( En anglais, cette expression rimera).

On Wednesday night, my camera slept at the hotel. It stupidly forgot to remind me to take it home. I collected it on Thursday lunch time and to my surprise, I was greeted by this wonderful 'Altocumulus Mackerel' cloud formation.
There is an old saying, "Mackerel Sky, Mackerel Sky. Never long wet - and never long dry."

Merveilleux ciel! En France on appelle cela: "un ciel moutonné" et l'expression dit:" ciel moutonné, beau temps de courte durée", mais j'espère que le beau soleil que vous avez en ce moment durera.

Glad you got the camera back.

Marie said...

Is it already September 1 in Adelaide? Here it is still August 31 for 45 minutes :-))

I had never heard of those clouds.... Very funny. I found the reason why they are called that way on Wikipedia :-))

Very beautiful photo!

Palm trees and blue skies are my kind of theme day photo...no matter what the others say! I see this as "a sign" to do something wonderfully good today!

Oh I love these clouds! :) They're usually a sign of good weather to come in Norway as well. :)
