Strange indeed. And those clouds sitting on the horizon look like another world.

You do get some interesting shots. I can't get it large enough to make a guess...well, I guess I can guess: if it was in the Gulf of Mexico I'd guess it's an oil rig. Maybe it's the frame of a houseboat going to a new mooring to be completed? Maybe it's a cage for humpback whales?

You were on a tear this morning what with all the comments! Thank you! I enjoyed them very much!

Hope your weekend is filled with fun and more great photos like this because I love it - the colors, the sky that drapes like a huge blanket over the scene and the clouds in the background that look like mountains rising from the sea!

That is a very strange thing. I loved Lowell's description of the clouds. The do look like snow-capped mountains rising from the sea.

Are they drilling for oil? The sea and cloudscape is wonderful.

On a clear day we can look north over our waters and see distant mountains that look like these clouds. They're a nice touch in this shot. And the structure made me want to pull out my binoculars to see if I could figure out what it is. No, wait. I can't do that. It's a photo. . . :-}

Very strange indeed. It reminds me of similar looking boats off the coast of Penang.
