If you are a cloud fan like me you will constantly be looking up to see what fantastic cloud shapes are in the sky. In the UK we get plenty of chances to see clouds but the best formations are seen not on overcast miserable days but when the atmosphere is more turbulent. Clouds are made of tiny drops of water suspended in the air and when enough of them are packed close enough together they become a cloud. You might think that clouds are fluffy white delicate things but the reality is very different. Inside them there can be very strong wind currents and surprisingly one of those fluffy white clouds rising in the air on a sunny day will have enough small droplets of water in it to weigh hundreds of tons! I have added a cloud gallery to the site and added a few pictures for you to see, as I add information to the site I will add more pictures and information about clouds so please keep calling back. I’ve also now got some time lapse video of clouds which I will add when edited
