I know this shot goes back a ways, but it really is beautiful. The way the sunlight hits the rain coming out of the cloud is fantastic.

Thanks. It is rather ominous, isn't it.

Orographic lift:
As the wind blows upslope to mountains, the air cools as it is forced up the slope. Depending on the humidiity of the air and extent of cooling, a cloud can form. As the air descends down the other side, it heats up and the cloud evaporates. This causes each mountain below to have their own clouds.

Jack, these three shots are really nice. The clouds almost look like cotton.

I imagine you can read the clouds and fly to their tell tale signs.
Always impressed by your views from up top.

Thanks- that is partly what caught my eye, cotton clouds localized over mountains

You are right, the clouds do tell us what is happening in the air. Those clouds also tell me flying through them would be bumpy; turbulence. I was very much above them. I'm always learning something new with the clouds.

You've looked at clouds from both sides now!
