Sunset Bones over Kazakhstan

When Cirrus clouds are arranged like the backbone of a fish, they are given the name ‘vertebratus’. Not only is this a beautiful formation, it is also quite a rare variety of Cirrus, which makes Tim Middleton’s photograph over Kazakhstan particularly impressive. Picked out by the rays of the setting sun, this Cirrus vertebratus seemed a fitting example to be Cloud of the Month for December.
