These clouds appear to be altocumulus undulatus clouds because the skew-T diagram shows a CAPE of 0.00 indicating a stable atmosphere, the Actual T and Dewpoint lines are closest at about 4500m, and the clouds form wavy rows. This picture was taken on an iPhone in Denver at 3:03 pm.

    Its so cool that you were bale to capture this phenomena and the crop only makes the picture better!

    The oscillatory nature of these clouds are incredible. This is a phenomena I have heard about but not seen so clearly. Very good photo!

    Love the stripes, and how they fade into the background

    These are awesome clouds, and your cropping did a great job highlighting them. I’ve seen some weird lenticular clouds over a volcano that have the same layering effect, so it makes me wonder why the layering occurs and how it can occur with different cloud types.

    The repetition in the cloud formation is super satisfying

    This is a great capture with a nice diagonal of altostratus undulatus clouds, and I like how the shadows on the underside of the clouds contrast with the bright tops of the clouds.

    The clouds almost look non-cloud like! They look like the sky is being ripped open, which is a really cool feature to capture.

    I really like the lines in this image! Especially when cropped, the clouds draw the eye in a really cool way

  • Clouds look so cool! Having some contrast enhancement is something to add if needed.

    Nice job cropping the original image to emphasize the clouds! I feel you did an awesome job editing the photo to emphasize the boundaries between the clouds and the blue sky.

    I really enjoy this image! The rows/ribbons of clouds are an amazing effect you’ve captured. You highlighted the shadows on the clouds really well while bringing out the blue on the sky. Great job

    These layers are so satisfying! I might consider cropping out some of the highway as the concrete is a bit distracting, but beautiful shot overall.
