Lenticular

In Spring New Zealand has a dominant north-westerly airflow, known as ‘equinoctial gales’ – these blow for about a month on a regular timetable.

This image is taken on an iPhone 4 – nothing fancy but my camera was in the glove-box of my car – 4 hours away and locked up at my mechanics.

Earlier in the day the cloud to the south of the mountain was elongated and simply sitting there. Nothing special, just a large amorphous mass of cloud.

I had left the mountain due to the increasing winds, that and end of season slushy snow conditions, so when I looked out my kitchen window, I was surprised to see this sharply delineated cloud sitting in much the same place, just now – clear and sharp edged.
