Yes!, finally somebody who finds it curious

The rock formations create all kinds of swirls and other artistic wind patterns and any clouds conform to it

They are called lenticular clouds, although this one is unusual. In flying you learn to avoid that area as there is turbulence

That cloud is amazing. I lived in Nevada where air currents over the Sierras made wild cloud patterns. I have seen lenticular clouds but this one looks so very strange. I love it!

Thanks for sharing the photo.

I love your anchor light. It looks so very peaceful.

Re: Any Photographers with DSLR's Around ?

After realizing he had no markings of any kind, wonder if he was happy I took this shot as he flew over the anchorage.

I come from soaring/gliding and those "lennies" get us all excited. They happen when laminar flow of air at higher speeds crosses mountain ranges (lots of conditions have to apply - angle, speed, topography, wind speeds at different altitudes, thermocline, etc.) but those clouds are signposts of standing lee waves. With few exceptions, altitude records were set using lee waves and long-distance flights often use this phenomena - I got one leg of my 1000km diamond flight in wave conditions off the sierra Nevada.
I got up to 28,000 feet above lennies in Utah around Brian Head once.
The airflow is laminar (unlike in the lower rotor clouds at mountain level) up there and it feels like you are in still air but the altimeter just keeps on unwinding!

CORRECTION - I just looked at the (wonderful) picture from S/V Jedi, but unfortunately that wisp of cloud is not a lenticular one. It is most likely the beginning of a cumulus cloud, a thermal is lifting moist (a relative term) air at speed to where it becomes saturated and turns into visible vapour.

Here's a picture of stacked lennies over a mountain, usually these are found each wavelength of the standing lee wave, often stacked.

Re: Any Photographers with DSLR's Around ?

As far as porpoises go, I'd just taken this picture


when this one appeared out of the blue, leaving no time to focus or frame the picture, just enough time to give me a good soaking.
