Cirrus fibratus

This was taken on the Mediterranean coast of Spain during a pleasant holiday at the end of October.  The weather was fine but a depression arrived during the next few days.

These are lovely high level clouds at around 20,000 feet and are gradually invading the sky because of the approaching lower pressure.  They sometimes thicken and form into thicker strands, gradually joining up.

You can see they are not alone as there are some lower level clouds creeping in on the right hand side which are possibly Cumulus.
