Vision 14 cloud seeding

  1. 1. Head in the clouds These rising plumes of Cumulus and Cumulonimbus clouds were snapped by pilot Ron Engels as he flew over Brazil. They are as dangerous as the smouldering battlefield they evoke, containing violent drafts of air that can easily flip a plane. Altocumulus lenticularis or lenticular clouds are often mistaken for Unidentified Flying Objects because of their lens-like forms, but in this image taken by Philippe Villette in the French Pyrenees, the cloud bears a striking resemblance to a soaring bird of prey Kamila Mazurkiewicz captured this mesmeric shot of rare Mammatus clouds forming beneath an anvil canopy in Pulawy, Poland. These pendulous forms are unusual examples of clouds that form in sinking air and are often associated with storms. The Cloud Appreciation Society sees wonder in clouds where others just see rain, regarding them as a form of poetry that expresses nature’s moods. These images, taken by members of the society, capture their spiritual reaction to the formations as well as their ephemeral beauty VISION Weather VISION Weather Fresh Perspectives from Dubai / 135www.vision.ae
