Ich sah den Regen sprichwรถrtlich auf mich zukommen..
Doch diese #Wolken waren einfach so atemberaubend schรถn! Fluffig, weich... und doch so bedrohlich.
Dabei sind sie mir eigentlich nur durch Zufall beim Umdrehen aufgefallen.
Da hat der Verschluss richtig geknallt ๐Ÿ˜‚

Good night folks ,and its looking like being a very chilly one in the north of Scotland so stay warm and cosy ๐Ÿ˜€

I so miss Scotland.
We lived in Kirkcaldy for a year when I worked for Amazon and it's hands down the best country I've ever been to. I spent many weekends in the Highlands tromping up some Munro's and I miss everything about that country and the people.

Is it a bird? Is it a cloud? Yesterday I took this picture of these 'bird shaped' clouds, who knows what these clouds are or why/how they develop?

I'm not sure if cirrus is still the correct name when they're below another cloud layer (cirrus are typically fair-weather high altitude clouds). But you're right in thinking they're probably ice crystals, at those altitudes probably supercooled. In the end the name doesn't matter too much - they're just very nice looking water features!
I agree, it's cirrus-type like, the freezing air probably bumped with the rainy clouds and made these great shapes... just lovely

A long exposure in the middle of a road at night in Eryri. The clouds move quickly above and the stars are revealed. Mountains to the left and right. 

A road sign points to the bottom of the frame.

Shelf cloud coming over... Hekelingen, NL, 25 July 2021

I would have missed this moment if my son had not shouted about the rainbow as we walked away. A fleeting moment nearly lost because I was looking in the wrong direction.

Ynys Seiriol and the Trwyn Du lighthouse perfectly framed by a rainbow which only lasted a few seconds.

Wow. Thank you for sharing this.
@raywilton thank you for your appreciation, stay tuned for more! Have a great Sunday
#ALT4you can someone more awake than me describe this cloud formation as alt text? Itโ€™s so cool
@rach I will come back to that request ๐Ÿ‘Œ
@rach it's like a sheet of cotton (the one use for the make up remover ) and it's like someone lifted it and it's currently setting down on Hat appear to be a big house and a shed-house or garage two. The houses are surrounded by grass and a road on the left of the photo. The road seems like it's gonna guide you in the cotton cloud. Just below the cotton cloud the sky is navy blue. It's kind of menacing.
@Hysope @rach wow, that's a great visual description of the picture, I just love it! Thanks!
