Cool Clouds: Wow!
Wow, look at those beautiful clouds crisscrossing the sky! It’s photos like this that make me remember why I started this project—so I’d pay more attention to the world around me.
If I hadn’t looked out the window because I knew I needed an image for my blog, I probably would have missed this amazing morning sky. I’m glad I didn’t.
So what kind of clouds are these? Good question. And I’m not sure I have an answer.
They look cirrus-y, but some of them are much too low to be cirrus. I’m guessing they’re a combination of cirrus and cirrostratus. But there might also be some altocumulus thrown in there. I need a cloud expert.
Or maybe I don’t. Maybe for today, I’ll be satisfied by just enjoying their beauty. Naming things can help us understand them, but we won’t care about understanding them if we don’t take the time to celebrate their wonder.
