Mare’s tails and mackerel scales make lofty ships take in their sails…

Our Sky this afternoon is beautiful. Apparently it’s called a ‘Mackerel sky’ or if you are in Germany ‘a flock of sheep’. They are small, white and fluffy cirrocumulus clouds and consist of ice crystals.

    How pretty. We had a display like that early last month. Today's sky is . . . mostly grey, clouds fairly high and have left their rain in Ireland i suspect. The occasional bit of blue sky.I want a LOT more blue sky for Sunday please! P.S. I grew up in So'ton, so not too far from where you are now.

    Clouds fascinate me too. I'm not too well up on what they are called but they are beautiful

    Hi, thanks for your comments on my blog šŸ™‚ I love clouds and this pic is beautiful. I live on a harbour so get to see lots of maritime clouds.

    I am not well versed either in cloud names, I had to google for it when my husband said 'mackerel '.
