I spotted this unusual cloud formation a couple of days ago, took a pic, and when I downloaded it, thought it looked like a stairway to.........? Well, it is silly Sunday!
Bitterly cold here still, with a thin layer of snow on the grass, and yet again, a biting North wind.

Cirrostratus Carol - a possible sign of the bad weather to come - I like the way the light catches the edges of the clouds. Well spotted and well photographed.

I see what you mean. Very well spotted.

It's been quite mild for the last few days here on the sunny Costa Del Wallasey. We must be having the best of the weather. Mind you, we are surrounded on 3 sides by water, & shielded by Liverpool & the Welsh hills/mountains.
