Caption: Lenticular cloud at sunset. A lenticular cloud gets its name from its lens-like shape. It is usually produced by an eddying wind near mountains. Such winds often form lee waves, standing waves of air with lenticular clouds at the wave peaks. Photographed at the Joshua Tree National monument, California, USA.
