Photographer captures ‘hand of God’ in the clouds above Kent
The people of Kent may have thought the rapture was upon them when they saw what looked like a hand protruding from the sky.
A photographer managed to capture the moment a cloud shaped like hand – dubbed the ‘hand of God’ – formed above his house in the Deal, near Dover.
David Christie, 38, who photographed the meteorological oddity, said: ‘It looked as through there was a huge hand piercing through the clouds – it was phenomenal.
‘It really did seem like the hand of God.’
The father of two said photographing the incredible cloud has sparked his interest in capturing natural wonders.
He said: ‘I’ve always wanted to do storm chasing in the US. Some of the things you see over there are incredible but this was a very surreal experience.’
It is believed the shape was formed by a wind-tunnel forming in storm clouds, rather than the hand of a deity.
