NC5665 : Track above Achininver

Track above Achininver
Track above Achininver
Road on to the hill, west of Achininver. A shower cloud departs having just missed the photographer. A cold day under low pressure. It is April, a month famed for showers, and with good reason. The warm sunshine heats air and the warm air rises. There is nothing to stop it rising until it reaches the jet stream. Water vapour condenses forming big rainclouds, often thundery. Today the heavy showers were falling as snow and hail. Between showers the clear air allowed long views.
