This particular photo was taken on October 5th at 5:32 PM outside of the UMC’s far-side entrance. The image was edited to have its negative be displayed to show the color contrast as the sun was setting. In Photoshop, the white borders of the mountains and buildings were cleaned to not show windows or outlying rock formations. These cumulus clouds were most likely on the verge of dissolving as they had originally started out as cumulonimbus until a large chunk separated and migrated West until it began to dissipate.

A Kelvin-Helmholtz instability forms in a stratocumulus lenticularis cloud above a foehn wall cloud on the leeward side of the Front Range during a westerly morning wind. The atmosphere was stably stratified at the time of this photo which was taken pointing west from Erie, Colorado on October 4th, 2016 at 8:42 AM MT.
