You're right Mick.
West Pennines into Lancs and East Pennines into Yorks. I'm sure Ron will recognise his mistake!!
Nice pic though....great vista for a painting! Mmmmm!

East is East and West is West and the wrong name I have chose.But I was confident Mick would correct me.

Knowledge is growth. Does anyone on WW know the type name for those clouds? Clouds are wonderful but also have some wonderful names, shame I don,t know them.
Thanks Ron, enjoyed your picture.

I'm no expert but I think the clouds are cumulus. If they aren't, I'm snookered because that is the extent of my cloud knowledge. By the way lovely photo. I bet Ernest Pyke will recognise Winter hill.

You are quite right on both, Derek. They are cumulus clouds.

Thank you Derek/Ernest, so these are cumulus clouds. Ermest, would love to follow your kind paste recommendation , but call me boring , I prefer things explained on a human level. Would dread if my comment is regarded arrogant

Julie; `Things are explained on a human level`, as you put it, on the website I stated.

Ernest. Would these be trending to the lenticular?
Comment by Ernest Pyke on 21st May 2015 at 10:02
Ken R; Extract from:-
"Lenticular clouds, technically known as altocumulus standing lenticularis, are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, normally aligned at right-angles to the wind direction."
Since 1964 I`ve played a lot of golf at Chorley G.C where Winter Hill can be seen and can`t recollect seeing any lenticular clouds. So my answer is "very unlikely,"
Comment by Julie on 21st May 2015 at 16:35
Thanks Ernest, take your point. What a wonderful name altocumulus standing lenticularis . Ernest, what age did you know what a Lenticular cloud looked liked? Just interested that's all.
Comment by Ernest Pyke on 21st May 2015 at 22:45
Julie; Never heard of a lenticular cloud until Ken R asked!
Comment by Ernest Pyke on 21st May 2015 at 22:55
Julie; I`m 87 years old.
Comment by Julie on 22nd May 2015 at 15:29
Sorry Earnest, I misunderstood when you wrote about playing golf. I thought you had known what a lenticular cloud looked like since childhood.
Comment by Ken R on 23rd May 2015 at 00:23
Ernest, I went to the Aspull Methodist School from 5 to 15 yrs, we were taught about clouds at an early age, what were the Blue Coats doing.
Comment by Ernest Pyke on 23rd May 2015 at 08:15
Ken R; Everything except learning about clouds! I first met the Metric System when I was 11. We had to use it in Physics at Wigan Junior Technical School. When did you meet it?

Lucky you Ken R.
