Scud


Photo Information
A scud-cloud moving laterally around a cumulonimbus - as it sails above the hillside in Totnes known as 'The Mount'.

Scud clouds are a type of fractus cloud - which are formed as the warmer (and often more moist) updraft (inflow) of a thunderstorm lifts the relatively warm air near the surface. These clouds condense as the warm, moist air saturates through ascent and is pushed outward from the storm. Scud clouds are very commonly found on the leading edge of a storm front.

Excellent, I will have to look out for them.

Well captured.

Many Thanks If a scud cloud starts rotating in a corkscrew fashion then it's time to run the other way!

Many thanks Paul 😊 I was fascinated with the cloud and thought it suited the monochrome tones😊 Whilst I generally am a purveyor of colour photos, I like the odd dabble in black and white when it seems suited to the image
