… or rather Skywatch Saturday, as the photo was taken this morning…
I forget what this type of cloud is called, but I’m not sure I’ve seen it combined with sunrise before.
it is called a mackerel sky, and means the weather is about to change. beautiful shot. we saw one yesterday at daybreak much like this one.
Thanks Sandra, now you mention it I remember having heard the name before :)
I've never even heard of a mackerel sky, so this post is both beautiful and informative, thanks to you and the reply from Sandra!KayAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
Thanks for visiting! :)
Quite dramatic effect, our skies in this pattern the other day were inkier colour - I'd never heard of a 'mackarel sky'. Thanks for sharing.
A bit more research tells me they're also called cirrocumulus or altocumulus clouds. Thanks for visiting!
Happy Sunday :)My skies are blue todayno clouds ... thank you for the lovely picture the word 'mackerel sky' - i never heard it before.In Germany we call this kind of clouds 'Schäfchenwolken'literally: lamb clouds :)
Vielen Dank, Mo - ich kenne die Wörter Schaf und Wolke; aber wenn es kommt zu verschiedenen Arten von Wolken... Nicht eben sicher was sie auf Schwedisch heissen! ;)
