On a car journey on Interstate 80 in California over the holiday, some family members and I saw something unusual on the horizon on our right-hand side. We were all wondering what we were looking at. Some of us thought it was snow on mountains behind foothills; others thought we were seeing unusual cloud formations.
As we drove on further I started to take photos and, as time went by, it became clear that we were looking at clouds. The white fluffy ones are, I think, cumulonimbus and the long gray ones may be stratocumulus. If anyone knows more about clouds than I do, please let me know what these are.
These shots were taken with my iPhone5 from inside the car and through the windshield. And, no, I wasn’t driving! I was happily seated on the passenger side.
