      Hi Maria,


      I’ll try but I am not really sure. Because they are so far, you see the clouds on the edge, so to say. So a layer of thin high clouds, like cirrostratus, could appear as a dense, solid cloud. So given the otherwise clear sky,  this is my first guess, cirrostratus.

      You have a nice view there. What part of the world is it? What is beyond the little hills on the horizon, any significant body of water?

      Perhaps you can tell us where you are, what time of day, looking east/west, time of the year. These are helpful in narrowing down your choices.
