The photo above shows a classic cap cloud about Monte Viso in Italy as observed on April 2, 2023. Monte Viso, the highest peak of the Cottian Alps, stands 12,602 ft (3,841 m). On this morning, as moist air at the base was forced upward along the flanks of Viso, it cooled and condensed as it reached the summit, forming this attention-getting cap.

Photo Details: Canon EOS 600D camera;1/2500 second exposure; f 7/1; ISO 200.

Monte Viso, Italy Coordinates: 44.66757.091667
