Googled for images of bluff bodies in close proximity to ground plane. - International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer - Heat transport from a bluff body near a moving wall at Re=100

ig. 4. Instantaneous contours of (a) vorticity (ω) and (b) isotherms at Re = 100 for various gap ratios, G/D, for the flow past a square cylinder near a plane moving wall. The isotherms are presented at the same instant of time for which the vorticity contours are drawn.

The all important corner vortex formation - see below.
