I posted the link to my girlfriend who is young atmospheric physicist. And she said "Wow! Lens over the island!".
The funny (for photographers) thing is, that this type of cloud is called... lenticular cloud (Altocumulus lenticularis).
It formes, when the air is forced to move upwards, where is colder and where water vapour condensates. It is observed most often over the mountains, but also over the cities and islands. The cities and islands acts on the air the same way, as the mountains. An this is the ilustration of that.

I'd change the link to this:

http://www.dailydigitalphoto.com/cgi-bin/potd/potd.pl?day=26&month=7&year=2006

which shows the image originally intended. Today's photo, "delusion", is a real slice of cheese.
