WOW! Isn't this something!

One of my friends, who lives in Tacoma, WA, sent me this amazing picture. I have not seen anything like this before and would like to share it with you by quoting the information from her:

"Those are called "lenticular clouds". They are caused when the air-flow is just right; so, when it flows over Mt. Rainier, the air gets pushed upward where it cools and condenses into clouds.

Depending how smooth the flow is, you can get some amazing cloud formations as we have seen so far today."

I am simply fascinated with the ways of Nature.
