Sea and clouds

neat clouds 2

Call me crazy, but I love beaches in winter.Β  This is Centerport Harbor, in Centerport, New York, where a friend and I took a long walk yesterday and watched some fascinating clouds roll in.

(If any of my geeky followers know the name of this specific cloud formation, I’d be interested; Google Image yielded no clear matches.)

  1. Not crazy! I totally agree. Beaches in winter are beautiful. I think the clouds are cirrus or cirrostratus πŸ™‚

      I don’t think they are…they were fairly low-hanging, and they had a bubbly, almost braided texture, which fanned out into feathery-ness farther off to the east. Thanks for the suggestion, though!

      • I am definitely more of a cloud appreciator, than a weather expert πŸ™‚

  2. Stratocumulus stratiformis perlucidus ?? Maybe one of those clouds forming?
