Clouds Which Looks Like UFOs By Denis Budkov

Lenticular clouds hover of the mountains of the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia.

I love photography and I had posted lots of photos by great photographers who took beautiful photos of animals, trees, mountains, lakes and others.

And today, I want to share something different – cool photos of clouds that looks like UFOs or Unidentified Flying Object by Russian photographer Denis Budkov.

These photos were snapped over Klyuchevskaya Sopka, the highest mountain of the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia.

They look so cool, especially the above photo.

The Mail Online wrote that the lens-shaped formations are scientifically known as ‘altocumulus lenticularis’ and are the result of moist air that has condensed at a high altitude.

They are formed when the air temperature drops and moisture droplets are pushed up a steep slope by high winds.

This unique atmospheric condition creates the interesting lens-shaped form that defines a lenticular cloud. 

Mountains act as natural barriers forcing clouds to condense quickly as they are pushed to cooler altitudes.
