Cirrus Fibratus at Newtown Nature Reserve.

Cirrus Fibratus at Newtown Nature Reserve by Jason Swain.

Stunning Cirrus clouds (cirrus fibratus) in the skies over Newtown nature reserve on the Isle of Wight, as the sun sets on a beautiful winters afternoon in January 2013. The ‘cloud spotters guide’ describes how the spreading and joining of cirrus clouds in the middle latitudes can be early signs of an approaching depression, heralding a deterioration in the weather, and i spotted these ones in the late afternoon / early evening of the last day before the island was hit by the first (and only so far) significant snow fall of the winter.

Two shot vertorama (vertical panorama) captured with the Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens (at 10mm) on the Canon 7D camera body.
