Caption: Stratocumulus clouds. Long streaks of stratocumulus over distant mountains. This low altitude (500-2,400 metre height) cloud is made up of water and ice particles. It is usually arranged in circular contiguous mounds as a patchwork or in orderly groups, but here prevailing winds have produced elongated streaks of the cloud. In bad weather stratocumulus may form an almost solid deck with rolling edges. Stratocumulus is very common, generally occurring in the northern hemisphere in winter and rarely producing rain. The distant mountains are the Rincon range, photographed from Mount Lemmon, Arizona, USA.
