Phenomena : Standing Lenticular

Phenomena : Standing Lenticular

This is a shot of mount Ranier at sunrise. I don't know when this occurred, but this type of cloud formation is called a "standing lenticular" and is caused by high winds in the upper layers of the atmosphere. Pretty spectacular, no?
