Jason Fontillas // Clouds 1

This is an image of clouds taken from the top of the Regent Parking structure on the CU main campus on 10/8/19 around 3:00pm. According to the Skew T Diagram (see above PDF), the main cloud in the photo is altocumulus with some altostatus surround them at about an altitude of 5600m. This is an unstable environment since it was the day before a large snow storm. Shot with IPhone 6, f/2.2, 1/15385sec, ISO 25, FL: 4mm.

  • The morning CAPE was zero, as Brian Gomez’ skew-T shows. I think the front arrived a bit later, so I’d call these Mountain wave clouds below cirrus.

    The contrast on the photo is brilliant. I really enjoy the layers of the clouds

    The different layers of light and dark are amazing. It looks like a painting.
