  • HELP! Clouds

    Anne and I noted the strange formation of these clouds this morning and would be pleased to learn if you have a name for them? Taken with the Olympus 12-40 lens attached to my OM- D E-M1 mkll.

        There's some good images of various clouds on this site:

          Re: Clouds

          Yes Cirrus IMO as well

          You can learn all about them here https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather...weather/clouds

          These are in the high clouds section

          However I think that some of the lines in that picture are from contrails rather than natural clouds.. we need another volcano to keep the planes grounded and stop contrails in our pictures

          regards
