Clouds

Lenticular Clouds


These clouds look like UFOs! Because of their saucer-like shape, they have often been mistaken for spaceships. Lenticular (lens-shaped) clouds form at high altitudes, by strong winds forced over high mountains.
 
These are the type of clouds that we see around Mt. Shasta frequently. On our way home from CA, we spotted some forming. I am drawn to them because they are so unusual for us to see.

Alien??
 This was an unusual form of clouds for us to see at home:
 The sunshine hitting just this one cloud was cool to watch.
Almost a full moon over our pink clouds.
No matter what, if you have clouds, creative thoughts can't be far away!
