Weather Fronts

2014-3426

Happy Sunday,
As a landscape photographer I’m always keeping a keen eye on the weather. I also need to mention that I’m an early riser so most of the time I can check out the sky long before the sun rises with hopes of predicting a dramatic sunrise. The first thing I did this morning was check the sky for clouds. Noticing that we had some altostratus clouds in the sky I thought I would head out for a quick shoot.
Altostratus clouds are gray or blue-gray middle level clouds composed of ice crystals and water droplets. These clouds usually cover the entire sky. In the thinner areas of the cloud, the sun may be dimly visible as a round disk. Altostratus clouds often form ahead of storms that will produce continuous precipitation.

Best of Light,

Ed
