In this photo I think there are Altocumulus clouds due to the patchy lumps. In the foreground of the image, I think it is a stratocumulus due to it being a combination of wispy and lumpy.

I think that the difference in saturation from the foreground to the background is super cool!
I like the texture of the cloud you captured here, the lighting from the sun is also beautiful. It almost looks like some cozy fur or a sheeps coat.
I love the textures in the top center of this image, the blue peeking through the orange is really beautiful.
The coloration in this image is awesome, thanks to both Colorado sunsets and postprocessing. Additionally, the skew-t provides an interesting insight into what elevation these stratocumulus clouds are at.
I like how the light source (the sun) is in between the layers of clouds, so that it brightens the background but the foreground is dark in contrast.
I would recommend cropping the tree out, it is a little distracting because it is such a small amount of tree, and looks unintentional that it is there.
The contrasting colors in this are really cool. I like that the dark cloud is front and center in your image; it adds to the contrast between it and the orange behind it!
I really like the difference in saturation of the light orange in the background to the dark orange in the foreground. Just capturing the clouds and omitting the foreground was a good choice.
