It’s hard to beat lenticular clouds! These unusual and spectacular clouds can be seen building up and the smart move is to have your gear ready for sunset, though they can be pretty special even at mid-day if not obscured by other haze (as they were today). I got some nice shots and just pulled one of them as shown below, tomorrow I’ll sort 'em out.
I’ve added this 180-megapixel panorama to this examples page, along with a bit of commentary.
