I'm used to seeing lenticular clouds in New Zealand but they are pretty rare around the Outer Hebrides. To see such splendid ones recently gave me a satisfying photo opportunity.
Lenticular clouds (Altocumulus lenticularis) are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, normally in perpendicular alignment to the wind direction. Due to their shape, they have been offered as an explanation for some Unidentified Flying Object sightings.
