2011-04-18 (Day 235) The Big Sky

I took this one on the way into work this morning. Doesn’t the sky look huge?

In the bottom left of the picture, the Grangemouth oil refinery pumping loads of steam into the atmosphere. But the thing that really grabbed my attention as the cloud formations.

Even in this small picture, you can clearly see where the northern end of the weather front lies. But it’s the cotton-wool texture of the clouds that really caught my eye.

I wonder if any of my meteorologically-aware friends can name this type of cloud?
