The clouds definitely look like flying fish swimming really fast through the air, as the wind blows over the snowy Greenlandic mountains. Good picture! From Rebecca Hill, Canberra, Australia
Marvellous! Big “WOW!” factor here with no problem!
Peter, thanks for sharing this one with us. Much appreciated – and that is putting it mildly!

Very nice picture, Peter. The lower cumulonimbus clouds seen from the flight deck look almost like a volcanic eruption about to explode as the pressure inside them becomes greater, while the noctilucent clouds above make the night sky look a bit like it is a large, dark blue lake, moving with the wind that you can look straight down into and see plenty of reflections of the dramatic storm cloud’s activity below the surface.

Marvellous shot, especially taken in monochrome which, I think, lends more grandeur to the scene you were lucky to have photographed. I was entranced by it.
Now, here is a test! Your photo immediately reminded me of the marvellous image taken very far away from our planet Earth by NASA’s “New Horizons” spacecraft of Pluto,
The image and shows Pluto’s clouds. It bears a remarkable similarity to your photo! Do, please, have a look.
Image released on NASA’s APOD page 18 September 2015.
What a stunning shot from above!! I just checked the NASA’s APOD page 18 and saw the uncanny resemblance of the two photos. Ours is much better or course.
A good shot of the clouds taken from an airplane. The black and White Image shows up the cloud shadows really well. All the tallest cumulus cloud anvils are pointing in the same direction. From Rebecca Hill
This is a superb mono image and from the flight deck .
Thanks for sharing
A beauteous and ethereal sunset! Magnificent!
An imaginative capture, Peter, of a rather rare cloud formation. Lovely colouring! Thanks.
Magnificent image, bravo!
Superb capture well done
Quote from Peter….
On a flight over the tropical jungle of South America we encountered quite a powerful weather system over the equator. The power of this weather system is not to be underestimated so we kept a safe distance. Flying at 35.00 feet these clouds were extending well above our altitude up to 48.000 feet.
Ah! That “other world”!
Brilliant scene and great timimg. Excellent.
I greatly wish I were right now – and far away from the ghastly incessant rain and seemingly unceasing clag we are having in the UK just now.
Thanks, Peter, for the uplifting photo. A good tonic.
