Strange clouds over Crofty

Sometimes you see some strange cloud formations in the sky, like this photo taken by Mrs Ali Collins.

It was taken over Crofty on Gower. I think the hole is in Altocumulus clouds looking up towards Cirrus clouds above.

After a little help from colleagues at the Met Office, we concluded that the hole in the Altocumulus clouds could either be caused by the distrail from a circling aircraft, or descent in mountain waves.

If you take an usual photograph of a cloud, please send it in and you never know - I might be able to show it on the telly!
