The title seems to be a contradiction in terms: how can natural cloud formations be unrealistic? But it does happen, and often!
Many times I look at the sky and consider that if an artist faithfully represented the cloud formation it would be considered unrealistic as a painting – which throws a shadow over the concept that artists are only limited by their own imagination – that is, if they want their art to appear realistic!
The best times to catch unrealistic cloud formations are sunrise and sunset and before, during or after a storm, however, strange formations can occur at any time of the day, any time of the year.
Here is a selection of beautiful but unrealistic natural cloud formations produced by outstanding photographers.
