Unusual Sunset

A few days after 17th.April's posting was taken we walked the same path once again at the Peak District farm where we rented a cottage last autumn and on that evening was a quite nice sunset in progress. My reason for taking this is obvious, I haven’t ever seen a strange cloud like that on the left of the picture, perhaps one of you might be able to explain it.

Umh...Global Warming...it is responsible for everything, Brian...

Brian Walbey: Don't get me started on Global Warming Ray, I'm one of those people who doesn't totally say it isn't happening but am inclined to think it is nature doing its stuff as it has done many times in the past.
C'est très beau. Quel magnifique ciel !
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martine.

I cannot explain it but it is a thing of wonder isn't it
Brian Walbey: All very strange but very picture worthy.
A wonderful and fascinating scene Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Whatever the cause or reason it adds to this wonderful sunset
Brian Walbey: I've never seen anything quite like it before Martin.
It seems whatever the sky was saying that night, it ended with an exclamation.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Mary, a wonderful sky.
like this shot
gorgeous layering in the sky, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
Very unusual, Brian - nice shot

Beyond me, Brian; I just marvel in awe at some of the great cloud formations that we get sometimes.
Brian Walbey: It was a wonderful sky that evening.
Isn't that beautiful! I'm no expert - and I'd really love to talk to one - but I think it may be a layer of Altostratus radiatus... bumping up against a layer of Cirrostatus undulatus... perhaps causing this little swirl. But I've really no idea! smile
Brian Walbey: According to your husband you have a book all about clouds and hae suggests you are probably right, whatever it was most unusual.
Great sky, Brian, I see my good wife is showing off..smile She has a book on clouds, she could be right!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank, there's me thinking she was an expert on such matters.
