South Georgia Island

PInk Cirrus Clouds

South Georgia Island (U.K.) sunset over Grytviken Harbor & Cumberland Bay. Cirrus clouds are composed of ice crystals and shaped like hairlike filaments. They are formed at an altitudes above 5000 metres (16,500 feet). The streaks are made of snowflakes that are falling from the cloud and being caught by the high level winds.
