Imaggeo on Mondays: Damavand Volcano

Damavand Volcano, Iran. A nice cap cloud can be seen at the top of the mountain. Cap cloud is an orographic cloud that is formed over a mountain peak, formed by the cooling and condensation of moist air climbing up and over the peak. Cap clouds appear to remain stationary.
