Lenticular Clouds in the Pyrenees

Lenticular Clouds near Saillagouse, on the Spain/France border of Catalonia. Clouds like these more or less stationary and lens-shaped, forming in the lower atmosphere, usually perpendicular to wind direction. Where I took this image was quite cold - the other side of the mountains, warm air was blowing in from the Mediterranean Sea - with the combination of both, the vapour was likely formed.
