Clouds of a Lenticular Sort

Mid-August cloud fest

At the Sacramento Delta, we rarely get rain during August, but when we do, this is the stunning cloud show we get! These clouds are known as “lenticular” clouds, due to their lens shape, caused by windy conditions. Read about these clouds here. Truth be told, this was the first time I had ever seen these types of clouds. Amazing, huh?

“Cloudy” is the theme for Jennifer Nichole Wells’ One Word Photo Challenge this week. Feel free to join anytime.

    • Thanks, Hugh, I sure hope that is not a prophetic statement for California, what with our drought! I’m happy I caught the moment. I even painted a small canvas of it.

      • Ah yes, sorry about that. I forgot about the drought that your part of the world is currently having.

        If I could send you some of rain we are having here in Southern England today, I would. It’s not stopped all day, plus we’ve had to put the heating back on!
