This week we asked you to look up and see 'what's above your head?' - you have done just that. The team have been looking through your photos from the BBC 23 Degrees photo pool - and I must admit there are already a great selection of photos. Each week we will be picking a photo for you to discuss.

Can you name what type of cloud this is?

Valley Clouds

Our team are on standby waiting for your comments. As always as and when you see it, whether it be a particularly interesting cloud, another weather phenomena or a pivotal moment signifying Earth's journey for 2011, add them to the BBC 23 Degrees photo pool - and who knows it may well find it's way to the blog or create an interesting debate.

    I guess I'll comment first since it's my Photo. The atmospherics that present themselves in the Laramie Valley in Wyoming as quite amazing at times. Wyoming's high winds, coupled with high elevations (7400' at my home where this photo was taken) make them appear both varied and highly transient. I suspect the clouds appear different here since I'm closer to them??
