Swell Of Waves In The Sky

Just found this amazing dreamy photo on Google tonight. And I just had to share this with everyone. It’s such an amazing sight to be seen. I really wish to see in in person some day.

And after seeing it, I imediately started to wonder how this can happen and if it is maybe Photoshop edited. And the website that posted the photo had an answer right below the image.

“This is an example of a Kelvin-Helmholtz Wave Cloud, formed when lighter warmer air passes above denser colder air. If the difference in the speed of the two air layers is significant, this shear induces clouds with wave-like appearance to develop between the two layers. “

The photo was taken at Jervis Bay, NSW by © Giselle Goloy. And was published on the Australian Museum Website.
