      A barren desert playa on the Oregon/Nevada border. The foreground is drying cracks and streaks left behind by muddy water blowing across the plain. We could do a road trip to this place.

    imalikshake: imalikshake: Sunset Lenticularity By David Cartier "The area between Kluane Lake and Haines Junction, Yukon, skirting the great cordillera of the Wrangell / St. Elias Mtn. range, is commonly productive of these stacked lenticular clouds … In late summer, as the sun begins to set around 11 PM, it’s beautiful to see these unique clouds, which are higher in altitude than their surrounding companions, catching the last peach colored rays of the sun."

    Lenticular Clouds - These aerial masterpieces only occur when air strategically flows over a mountain and into bigger, more dense clouds.

    This is a 'lenticular' cloud disply on Oregon's Alvord desert. These clouds often occur on the leeward side of mountain ranges before major storms. The color was like something I've only seen once before in my life.

    Absolutely spectacular shot of lenticular clouds over the Sandwich islands. Also known as altocumulus standing lenticularis, these are stationary, lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes. They are included in the middle layer cloud family because the bases of the clouds are stationed between ~ 2,000 - 7,000 meters. These clouds form when moist air is forced to flow up around mountains and large hills. The water is super cooled and condensed from air below the dew point temperature....
