Taken early one evening from Birdlip Hill, Gloucestershire and looking west. The photograph above is one of my favourite cloud shots of all time: I like it for the simplicity and the soft colours blending in with each other. These clouds float around at about 2,000ft give or take a little.
These clouds are still forming as their bases haven't come together completely. They're common in warm fine weather and sometimes rise further to become Cumulus mediocris or cumulus congestus if there has already been rain. Happily this didn't happen on this day, they rolled by as we drove home in lovely weather.
