Hide and seek with the sun in cumulus mediocris clouds

Cumulus mediocris clouds are impressive formations with some vertical enlargement. They often have a cauliflower-like appearance and protuberances may form on their top. When convective clouds of this pattern appear it is usually great time to fly. Check some close up photos of cumulus clouds.
