Clouds First – Abhishek Raut

An image of Altocumulus Floccus Clouds above Boulder.
The featured image is the unedited original image. And below is a slightly edited version of the image where I increased the sharpness and modified the shadows and highlights a bit which is looking better with the blue backdrop of the sky.

Image was taken at 6:51pm on September 15th 2023.

Camera settings:
Pixel 6
Aperture: f/1.9
Shutter speed: 1/1133
Focal Length: 6.81mm
ISO 37

Looking at the temperature line and the dewpoint, the region of altitude from approx. 3km to 7km has a likeliness of cloud formation. This info coupled with the shape of the clouds as seen in the image would mostly imply that these are Altocumulus Floccus clouds.

    Hi Abhishek, I like sharp the clouds look in this image. It provides a nice variety to cloud pictures.

    I like how you can also feel the texture of the clouds in your photograph. It’s really neat.

    I like how you captured so many small cloud formations into one frame, it almost looks like a painting
