Clouds disrupted by islands

Clouds disrupted by islands, true-colour satellite image. North is at top. The islands (brown) of the Canary Islands (lower right) and Madeira (upper centre) are disrupting clouds (white) as they move across the Atlantic Ocean (blue). The clouds are being blown by a wind (from the north), which is disrupted by the presence of the islands, leading to the clear skies around and beyond the islands. The solitary island of Madeira has a minor effect, but the Canary Islands together create a wake that is like that of a single large island.
