  • *Cloud Classification School* 🏫 Let's classify this cloud together. 🙌⁣⁠
⁠⠀
What we've got here is a layer of clouds that mostly cover the sky, but not to the point where it's not a dreary day! The clouds are heaped together. Not too high in the sky to be cirrus, cirrocumulus, or cirrostratus. But not low enough to be cumulus or stratocumulus. These mid-altitude cloud heaps are a great example of altocumulus clouds. ✅⁠
⁠⠀
When identifying the cloud species, remember that it's proper to choose only one species. Altocumulus clouds can be one of five cloud species: castellanus (rising towers), floccus (puffy, ragged tufts), lenticularis (UFO lens-shaped), stratiformis (horizontal, layerlike), and volutus (roll cloud). Of the five, pictured is an example of a layered cumuliform cloud covering the sky. A pretty classic example of the 'stratiformis' cloud species. ✅⁠
⁠⠀
While altocumulus clouds can be one of seven cloud varieties and five cloud features, the variety that stands out are the cracks in the cloud heaps where you can see blue sky. A classic example of the cloud variety 'perlucidus'. So... putting all the pieces together... 🥁⁠
⁠⠀
⛅️ #WhatsThisCloud: The clouds featured are classified as 'altocumulus stratiformis perlucidus’ (Ac str pe).⁠⠀

  • I need to do a clouds book. I have so many that I haven’t posted anywhere. Clouds are one of my favorite things to look at. This is one I adjusted with Insta when I was bored but I have some really pretty ones. #clouds #cloudphotography #cloudphoto #sky #skyphotography
