Summary Author: Dominic Mercier 

The photo above shows a wavy sky at the close of a windy day near Chertsey, Quebec. The wavy pattern results from Kelvin-Helmholtz instability that will sometimes form within a stable layer of air that's been subjected to vertical wind shear. Delicate cloud shadows, silhouetted conifers and a snow-covered foreground enhance this lovely sunset scene. Photo taken on March 30, 2018.
