Skywatch Friday - Ben Rinnes and cotton wool clouds


Ben Rinnes in Mount Fujiama guise, beneath a sky of cotton wool balls (which might be altocumulus stratiformis perlucidus). Sunday on Speyside was hot - 20 degrees Centigrade. That's HOT for Scotland in April. We chose that day to climb Cairn Daimh, slogging up through snow and clambering over fallen trees in the conifer plantations. It was worth it for many things, including this glorious expanse of sky.

  6. I don't think I have ever seen a cloud formation like that. It is almost like a rows of cotton balls. Great photo.

  7. As a kid I always used to think the same as in your title! Cotton, wool flying in the sky :-)

  8. Fabulous photograph! Awesome peak and the pretty expanse of the sky in the photo is justly deserved.

    You must be getting some ash your way. Hope it clears up quickly.
