Photographs by Fedor Yurchikhin depict clouds of unimaginable shapes and colors. It's 10 km to 12 km above ground so welcome to heaven!
Enchanting post !
H.A.R.P technology allows to do crazy things.. :-/
Nothing even remotely crazy about these clouds. What we see here are typical anvils, various kinds of clouds (cirrocumulus, altocumulus etc), meteorological eddies (the spirals) and so on. And the regular aircraft contrail (with it’s sharp shadow on the cloud cover below), of course. The “pancakes” look pretty awesome, I must say, but that’s not uncommon either, the photo is taken over a chain of mountaineous islands sporting lenticular clouds over them (they usually do).
The one with the curls reminds me of Van Gogh’s Starry Night.
WOW!! Stunning photography. Our planet Earth realy is beautiful. It’s a real shame how we treat it.
Well those clouds could very well be at 10-12km high, but please mention the fact, that they were photographed from the ISS.
Normal commercial airplanes fly at 12km.
