Gorgeous! And they do look like alien clouds! They look like the linticular clouds that we frequently see over Mt. Ranier. Terrific captures, Jill! Hope you have a super weekend!

Arija beat me, they are called Lenticular clouds and they are very cool looking. Often mistaken for UFO's.

I ran into a man one time who told me to run away from those clouds because the 'aliens hide their ships behind them'. So your post today made me smile at the memory.

Carver said...

Those alien clouds are amazing. They look like a fleet of space ships.

I've seen paintings of these types of clouds and would have thought they were unreal - love that you were able to photograph this!
