Caption: Timelapse footage of clouds at sunset over mountains. The mountains are capped by clouds caused by condensation of water vapour as the air is lifted over the mountains. This sets up a standing wave downwind of the mountains, and there is a second band of stationary cloud where the wave's peak carries air to a high enough altitude that moisture condenses again. Filmed in the USA in summer.
