Beautiful Clouds – Like You Never Imagined

Clouds are a beautiful gift of nature and a great contributor to human civilizations. Besides its benefits in agriculture, clouds influence human mood, creates romanticism and thus have a strong presence in literature. It is an interesting subject for scientists too due to its complexity of formation and particles.

Despite varying immensely in terms of size, color and dimension; clouds all over the world are basically made of ice or condensed water vapor. When the ground water comes in touch with sunlight, it starts to vaporize and flies above the atmosphere. Once the water vapor cools down, they cluster together to form clouds. Only the thick and coldest clouds come down as precipitation; the rest melts away with the air.

Scientists have been trying to create a definite classification system of the cloud for a long time. In 1802, British chemist Luke Howard proposed the first classification. Since then, it has been modified, improved and extended based on various cloud shapes, altitude, color, features etc. However, one never requires scientific knowledge to appreciate beauty, and it is the same for the cloud too.

Here is a collection of amazing cloud photos that will definitely put you in awe for its variation in color and shape!
