I wanted to show how this unique cloud started to collapse over the mountains fifteen minutes after I took the first image posted yesterday.
These types of clouds are created when stable moist air flows over a mountain or a range of mountains, a series of large-scale standing waves may form on the downwind side. If the temperature at the crest of the wave drops to the dew point, moisture in the air may condense to form lenticular clouds.
