The 'Dulux' cloud: Amazing formation rolls into view looking just like an old English sheepdog

This Old English sheepdog was spotted floating in the sky by quick-thinking photographer Peter Van Allen above Portland Harbour, in Dorset.

The dramatic image, looking uncannily like the 'Dulux dog' was snapped on a cold autumn afternoon while the 55-year-old was walking along the nearby Chesil Beach.

Graphic designer Mr Van Allen said the cloud formed for just seconds because of high winds but he was able to quickly get the shot.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a dog: The incredible cloud which rolled into view looking just like the 'Dulux dog'. Peter Van Allen captured the shot on a cold autumn afternoon above Portland Bay

The married dad-of-one said: 'I was out walking on Chesil Beach, looking up at the sky when I suddenly saw this animal shape appearing and evolving.

'Luckily I had my point and shoot camera with me and quickly grabbed this one shot before it disappeared completely.'

The cloud appeared over Portland Harbour, where the 2010 Olympic sailing events are to be staged.

'Being wintertime, the clouds were moving very fast in a strong westerly wind constantly making cloud shapes and patterns,' said Mr Van Allen.

'It was all over in about five seconds. Being a graphic designer I am always looking for shapes, composition, something a little different.

'I guess it's all part of the work that I do, and living here in this very picturesque part of the world it's not that difficult to find subject matter.'(dailymail.co.uk)
