Amazing shot!
A Lenticular Cloud over New Zealand

What's happening above those mountains? Several clouds are stacked up into one striking lenticular cloud. Normally, air moves much more horizontally than it does vertically. Sometimes, however, such as when wind comes off of a mountain or a hill, relatively strong vertical oscillations take place as the air stabilizes. The dry air at the top of an oscillation may be quite stratified in moisture content, and hence forms clouds at each layer where the air saturates with moisture. The result can be a lenticular cloud with a strongly layered appearance. This picture was taken in 2002 looking southwest over the Tararua Range mountains from North Island, New Zealand.

Wings Over Waukesha Review: Top 5 Photos

I wrapped up my air show season with Wings Over Waukesha in Waukesha, Wisconsin.  This is the smallest show that I attended this year.  The thing I like about this show is that they have a good number of old warbirds to photograph both on the ground and in the air.
Here are my top 5 photographs from Wings Over Waukesha: http://wp.me/p264h6-Oi
