Turbulence by Peter Hammer

Lenticular clouds and shadows from them light up the mountainous country of the Los Glaciares National Park in Argentinian Patagonia. The peak on the right is the famous El Cerro which spends close to 90% of its time shrouded in cloud. We were lucky with exceptional weather and largely no cloud low down but it did come and go too. You can see a glacier curving away in the bottom left.

    Majestic mountains – and I have never seen clouds like this in this hemisphere (Vancouver Island, Canada) – an exceptional shot!

  • Thanks Annie. You get these clouds over Mt Rainier in Washington State in the USA a fair bit. Wherever there are high mountains and strong prevailing winds they can form.

    Thanks, Peter, that’s very interesting – I live on the northwest of Vancouver Island, and we are surrounded by mountains …. but we have never any strong winds – kind of protected by the mountains somehow!!!!!
