Mount Damavand Lenticular Cloud Cap

Mount Damavand clouds form under different conditions and are divided in different shapes and families. Cap cloud is among the most beautiful ones which can be seen on the top of a mountain. It is shaped by the cooling and condensation of moist air moving up over the peak and looks like a lenticular or un umbrella. If there is no strong wind, it will stay stationary on a summit for few hours.
