The weather man responsible for these eerily beautiful images is Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde, and no, the clouds are not the product of some creative Photoshopping!

The results are big puffy clouds that loom just long enough for a snapshot before disappearing into thin air. Smilde thought of this series as a visualization of bad luck, and that concept totally comes through for me. The cloud in the first photo seems to be creeping along the deserted corridors, just looking for a victim to rain down on…

    No way! I totally thought photoshop, which was kind of cool, but actually conjuring mini little fluffy clouds is ridiculously cool. I love this! Thanks for stopping by and commenting,
