Atmospheric Cap by FramedByNature Atmospheric Cap by FramedByNature
:star: Witness the power of nature...:star:


This cloud formation, known as a pileus cloud, occurs when there is a warm lid of air over the atmosphere. When clouds get the convective push and start to build upwards, they run into this layer. When this happens, the cloud/airmass cools and condenses into the cap-shaped cloud. :nod: Storm chasers often hate the appearance of pileus clouds, as they signify that storms may have trouble building in the future. I, however, love them. Their smooth appearance is so beautiful in contrast to the convective updrafts :)

If you look at the darker clouds, it looks like a hand holding up the upper clouds. Nice shot! I once saw a cloud that looked like Wario, but that was a long time ago and I had no camera.
