Stratus strips, torn from the ceiling that covers the entire sky, reach the upper part of the hills. These fragments, broken by strong winds from the native clouds, are called fractus. Generally, they are in constant motion, appear and dissipate quickly, but sometimes persist in the immediate vicinity of the earth, for a longer time.
The image was created with a Nikon D40X camera and Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX lens, using these settings: focal length – 55 mm, exposure time – 1/13 sec, ISO 100, lens aperture – 29.
