The UK Guardian Journal has a centre page spread picture today 19AUG2019 –
Sunset and storm ‘An early evening at Eilean Donan Castle, near Dornie in the west coast Highlands of Scotland. Taken in 2016’ by Dave Harnetty/Guardian Community
However I can not link to the picture because The Guardian uses Press Reader to protect it unless you sign up. (Google will give you pictures of the castle, seemingly a hotel now).
My point is that the water and landscape to the left of their picture is not dissimilar to McKessar’s third picture above. And there is a (sunlit) pile d’assiette in roughly the same position. It’s a great monochrome picture.
Keelin, I particularly like Towards Twilight. In fact I wonder if you kept shooting because I have concluded of late that I really enjoy Post Twilight – the sky still has light but the clouds are now dark. Recently a waxing sliver of setting moon in the North West added its charm to the vista.
Just like Hans above, July 27, 2018, I experienced petrichor a year later. I had just finished mowing and unplugged the electric mower when a few drops fell on the mower and I could feel one or two on my shirt. I was quite smug, but even more so a minute or two later when that earthy aroma arose around,
From this article on CAS (new to me) the picture of Carolyn Byrne appeared in The Times, UK, 26JUL2019
George, that’s a champion suggestion; and congratulations to Simona Halep from Constanza, Romania’s first Wimbledon champion.
You ask the right questions, Based on my guru (Clouds and Weather, R.K. Pilsbury) wave clouds occur when 1) There was an inversion of temperature with height 2) Wind direction was fairly constant with height 3) Wind speed increased with height 4) Wind speed at 2.000 feet was at least 20 knots.
There can be a train of waves (not here). The stack is stationary; it can be set up by (even a low) ridge of hills (but not an isolated hill), and some way away (15 miles in one example).
One questions whether there might be a ridge of hills to the right causing the stack, with wind blowing right to left. There can be a roll cloud below the lowest lenticular (turbulence), possible here perhaps.

Father of Bossa Nova – Chega de Saudade 1958
Towards the end of Paul Simons’ column above he mentions a stunning time-lapse video by Ben Pickering in Leeds, UK:
The last para says ‘….but wearing polarised sunglasses helps to reveal them.’
I think it was Michael who said always look behind you.
F5 in Windows 10 needed again. If you mean that linear feature just above the lights, Hans, I don’t find that strange – saw something similar late afternoon today, interesting but not remarkable.
Impressive asperitas and noctilucent.
