Reflections in clouds


Are reflections in clouds possible. I saw this photo on a local website. You might like to comment on it. http://gallery.di-ve.com/Competition154/slides/1.html.

Also, is it possible, during a lightening strike, to have an object struck by lighening to leave an imprint on a jersey which one would describe as a photograph of the object hit? If yes why does it happen. Thank you for answering my query.

@1: No.

@2: No, that mark is not a 'photograph'. It is a burn mark.

  You can get lysergic reflections.

  I had hoped you would answer in simple english lol. What is lysergic? Did you have a look at the photograph I indicated and if so, then, what do you think it is?

WYSIWYG.
What You See Is What You Get: a big dome on a hillside behind some housing on another hillside in front of it. All through a whopper of a telephoto lens.

  Greg, I know the place well.

The dome is not on a hillside as you can see from this link which is a picture of the church of Msida...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Msida_Parish_Church.jpg.

I did not understand your last sentence Greg.

  It boils down to a building in the background with misty air. Or purple haze.

Msida?
Looks more like Mosta to me. But then I was there 35 years ago.
So for me that would be Amnesia Haze, Greg...

  Dont think its possible Maria, if it was real I bet he would not be the only person to photograph it and yes it is burned on the right side. Unprofessional dd work in my opinion.

  Plain and simple terms: This image was created on the computer by combining two images.

You could have a shadow on clouds (like the bat signal), but I don't think clouds will reflect any image, other than a rainbow, which is not really a reflection.

  I agree with Chris.
