This fleeting cloud formation (part of the Sky Scupture series) was photographed in the fall downwind of Wheeler Crest in the Eastern Sierra. Like orographic lenticular clouds, this type of formation forms on the lee side of mountains by winds that are forced upward where the water vapor condenses into beautiful but quickly changing formations. After photographing several evolving cloud formations in the later afternoon, the sun finally cast its golden light on this last eyebrow in the sky. (The Cloud Appreciation Society has petitioned the World Meteorological Organization to name this unusual cloud type “supercilium,” which means eyebrow in Latin).
This photo works well as either a canvas or metal print.
About the Fine Art Photos
Premium fine art canvas wraps are printed directly onto museum-quality canvas using high-quality archival inks. The canvas used is specially coated, ph neutral and archival, and comes in surfaces that are glossy, lustre (near-matte surface), or metallic for a radiant glow.
Metal prints are made by infusing dyes directly onto specially coated, .045 aluminum sheets that are durable, scratch resistant, and easy to clean. They are waterproof and weatherproof, but should not be displayed in direct sunlight. They come with 1/8″ rounded corners and are ready to hang.
Prints take 15-20 days to process, then will be shipped.
