A Face In The Clouds
Photograph - Fine Art Photography
A Face appeared in the Clouds above as the storm Clouds below were forming...it appeared as if the profile of the Face was looking down upon the menacing storm Clouds covering the Earth...fascinating. "A Face in the Clouds" Fine Art Photography by Barbara Chichester.....Clouds are formed in Earth's atmosphere when water evaporates into vapor from oceans, lakes, ponds, and even streams and rivers; and by evaporation or transpiration over moist areas of Earth's land surface. The vapor rises up into colder areas of the atmosphere due to convective, orographic, or frontal lifting. The water vapor attaches itself to condensation nuclei which could be anything from dust to microscopic particles of salt and debris. Once the vapor has been cooled to saturation, the cloud becomes visible. All weather-producing clouds form in the troposphere, the lowest major layer of the atmosphere. However very small amounts of water vapor can be found higher up in the stratosphere and mesosphere and may condense into very thin clouds if the air temperatures are sufficiently cold....
Cumulus mediocris is a low to middle level cloud with some vertical extent of the genus cumulus, larger in vertical development than cumulus humilis. It may or may not show the cauliflower form characteristic of cumulus clouds. These clouds do not generally produce precipitation, but may further advance into clouds such as cumulus congestus and Cumulonimbus, which do. (Wikipedia)
