Cloud Inversion

Taken from Bow Fell looking over to Scafell and Scarfell Pike

To give you some context, a cloud inversion or temperature inversion is when the normal temperature distribution of air – warm at the bottom and colder as you get higher – becomes flipped or 'inverted'. This means at ground level you have a cold layer of air trapped and overlain by a layer of warm air.

An excellent scene my friend. I thought you were doing well to have got up and seen this recently, I would not have guessed a copy of a 1970 photo. Well done.

Regards. Herb

Thanks for sharing with both our UK Landscape Photography Group and The English Lake District Groups

These inversions often make for great shots such as this. I used to wait and see if the weather forecast gave any hint of this and, if so, head off to the mountains. Got lucky once!
