Caption: Cirrus clouds in a blue sky. These clouds form at high altitudes, typically above 5000 metres. They consist of tiny ice crystals. The wispy shapes of cirrus clouds are produced as the ice crystals are blown by strong winds. A bank of cirrus clouds may indicate an approaching weather front.
