About this book

Discover the amazing and unexpected world of clouds with this inspiring collection of images. Richard Hamblyn offers a selection of some of the most startling and unusual cloud formations, from the uniform streaks of 'cloud streets' to the odd bulbous 'lenticularis' that are commonly mistaken for UFOs. Each amazing photograph will be accompanied by Hamblyn's entertaining and informative explanation of how the cloud was formed and the conditions in which a similar one might occur. The images chosen use satellite photography of clouds from above as well as ground-based pictures and the collection demonstrates the most unexpected and seemingly impossible patterns that can be created by the natural cyles of the weather.

Contents

Introduction; Weird and Wonderful Clouds; The Clouds from Above; Clouds and Light; Man-made Clouds; Index.
