An amazing weather phenomenon, perfectly captured by you, Bruce.
I've seen many different clouds during my lifetime, but not a lenticular one like this one.
I'm not that lucky like you, Buddy, 😁 !

Bruce, I have been lucky enough to have seen and photograph a Fallstreak Hole, but I have never been fortunate to see a Lenticular cloud. It must have been amazing for you to have seen this.

Wonderful distinct and great view of the size and scope in contrast to the mountain.

The Mothership has arrived!!! My idiocy aside, this is a very cool shot, Bruce. Lenticulars form over high mountains and mountain ranges (like one I caught out in Glacier National Park, coming over the Continental Divide), and manifest in a variety of shapes. They are somewhat rare, though, so you are lucky to have been in the right place at the right time.

The three layers we see here make this the shelf variation of a lenticular, and an obvious choice for the contest. You are sure to place well, Bruce. Good luck.

That is an awesome cloud formation, Bruce! Looks like the mountain range is using it for its crowning glory.
