Mackerel scales and mare's tails make lofty ships carry low sails

Well that's the saying, but fortunately we did not have to shorten sail this week.  Just a little rain on Friday.  Technically these are Cirrus uncinus, found above 26,000 ft.  They are composed of ice crystals.  And they are beautiful.  Photo taken from the Schoolship Inland Seas, May 4, 2011.
