I forget what this type of cloud is called, but I’m not sure I’ve seen it combined with sunrise before.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

    1. A bit more research tells me they're also called cirrocumulus or altocumulus clouds. Thanks for visiting!

    1. 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! ;)
