Photographer captures amazing cloud formation over the Ipswich Waterfront

Amateur photographer John Field captured an amazing cloud formation image, over UCS and Ipswich Waterfront, on Wednesday last week.

John had come out after lunch at the Bistro on the Quay, when he spotted the cloud formation and snapped this photograph,

“It is amazing,” he said, “My wife thinks it looks like a giant teddy bear.”

  • Please note, my comment is just my opinion, as you will see, not one person is named when talking about negativity. Great shot, as a keen amateur photographer I appreciate the moment captured here. Were there any more pictures in the series? Or is it just this one? If you had caught its reflection too, this would of looked most effective. Don't be discouraged by the moaners John Field, some seem to believe the local paper should only contain serious news. A light hearted feature such as this is just what the doctored ordered, after all we live in a tiny town, only so much news happens on a daily basis, the star need stories like this which are non offensive as filler. Just wish this site wasn't so full of scam adverts.

  • Anyway, it is funny and what's wrong with a little bit of harmless humour in this world?

  • The once sole reason for the existence of newspapers, i.e. reporting simple "news" is now consigned to the history books, as of 2,3,4 years ago. We now live in a digital age of real-time reporting via social media etc. The photo is, I agree, hardly newsworthy as it doesn't imply an impending weather born disaster, but posting it is one way of the Star connecting with its network of readers and followers.

  • At first sight I thought it was the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man but never mind. OK it's hardly news but it does make a change from the doom and gloom (including dumb criminals) don't you think Steve?

  • Clouds over Ipswich Waterfront shocker . . . as per previous comment whilst it is a nice picture it's not really news and pretty sure it's not business news obviously a quiet day in the newsroom
