Nice Matthew!! Like a glacier made out of cotton... The buildings? An observatory? /Thomas

Thanks, steandeb. The difference between the weather below and above the clouds was quite staggering.

Hello, pympe - yes, the white buildings form an observatory - both meteorological and astronomical.

i took a bus tour around Tenerife, and our guide told us that "once we’re gonna pass that next hill we will see tons of snow covering the north side of the island" (and it was middle of summer). unfortunately we were unlucky and that day there was no 'snow'. of course she later explained to us that she had those clouds in mind.

oh, and very nice photo btw ;)
