Caption: Cumulus clouds with crepuscular sun rays emanating from behind them. Cumulus clouds are a common type of cloud, forming at altitudes between 600 and 1000 metres. Crepuscular rays (alternating dark and light) are caused by scattered sunlight, due to atmospheric particles or a break in a layer of cloud. The divergent appearance is an effect of perspective, they are in fact parallel.
