Lenticular cloud on Klyuchevskaya

Looking innocuous at the photo, this elegant veil felt rather intimidating in reality as it revolved at tremendous speed. The prominence of Klyuchevskaya above the glacier is over 2000 meters - almost Himalayan scales!

Thanks!

Thank you all for your comments! Indeed, lenticular clouds are rather common around standalone summits. However, I've never seen rotating one before! I wish I had memory card space to shoot a video then :(
