One day in Covilhã with cirrus duplicatus

Sheets of cirrus duplicatus clouds at different layers of the atmosphere, Covilhã, central Portugal.

The story behind: Standing in the center of old part of the small mountainous town of Covilhã and being surprised by these delicate net of high level clouds I took my camera and shoot a photo. Low temperatures, crystal clear views , snow covered mountain peaks and orange trees ready for harvest always make me feel happy here. This is my place - I thought.
