Hide and seek with the sun in puffy clouds (2)

When puffy clouds appear on the sky and grow into cumulus mediocris clouds, there is a good chance to reach the cloud base. This is not an occasion that happens every day. Some special weather conditions are necessary. These days are also great to make close up aerial pictures or footages of clouds. Take a look at the paragliding panorama of the sky above northwestern Hungary on an amazing day.

There are some special days, when it is possible to reach the clouds. But in case of very unstable atmospheric conditions and considerable risk of thunderstorms it is better to avoid them.
