Caption: Timelapse footage of stationary mountain wave clouds being illuminated by the setting sun. Standing wave clouds are produced by the wind moving over mountains, and can persist for hours. As the passage of the aeroplane contrail shows, such clouds typically form below flight levels. Filmed in Colorado, USA, in winter.
