Not sure why I am so taken with clouds lately. I guess it is because the clouds are so beautiful. The cause is a warm air mass with plenty of moisture. Warm air rises to higher altitudes where the temperature is cooler, and as it does, the rising air reaches the dew point and the clouds form. Now usually, there is so much haze and air pollution around, that we never really see the beauty of the clouds because we are looking through all the "junk" in the air. For some reason, the air is clear, and we can see the cumulus clouds in all their beauty.
