Sunset Lenticularity

The area between Kluane Lake and Haines Junction, Yukon, skirting the great cordillera of the Wrangell / St. Elias Mtn. range, is commonly productive of these stacked lenticular clouds ... In late summer, as the sun begins to set around 11 PM, it's beautiful to see these unique clouds, which are higher in altitude than their surrounding companions, catching the last peach colored rays of the sun.

    Oh yes David I know for a fact that these wonderful lenticular clouds occasionally get hot pink or orange during certain amazing sunsets.... it is a fact! don't mind those people like Taylor Nunes who simply do not understand that, have not witnessed it for themselves. I read many supportive wonderful comments here as well from those who know what you produce and how pure it is
