Cumulus Humilis clouds

Cumulus clouds mostly form as a result of localized pockets of warm air rising.
Cumulus humilis is the smallest form of cumulus clouds and results from relatively weak convection (humilis means humble in Latin). This produces clouds that generally have flat bases and small, rounded tops. Technically, a cumulus cloud is considered to be a humilis formation if it is wider than it is tall, as estimated by an observer on the ground. The height of these type of clouds is about 500 tot 1000 meter or 2000 to 3500 feet. It’s unusual that rain falls out of these type of clouds.

My first time out for Rowena Crest overlooking the mighty Columbia River in Oregon. At 4:00 AM I had the extreme good fortune of seeing my new photog friend Bronwyn pull into the parking lot. My humble thanks go to her for sharing her secret locations and techniques for capturing this amazing scene! Thank you to everyone for taking a moment to view my work, for voting and/or for any constructive comments!
