A layer of cload at about 1500m obscures the view, but creates a fascinating ever-changing image.
 
Place: Santa Cruz de La Palma, Fuente de Olen

The sun heats up the lower slopes and the air rises and takes the humidity in the trees with it. At a certain height the temperature is cooler and the water vapour condenses into cloud. At higher altitudes the temperature/humidty ratio changes again and the cloud disappears.
