Artist captures awe-inspiring pictures of flying-saucer clouds hovering over a volcano in Russia

These mind-blowing pictures of gorgeous and unreal looking clouds hovering over the volcanoes of Kamchatka in eastern Russia will make you gasp with awe and inspiration.

Lenticular clouds are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form in the troposphere, normally in perpendicular alignment to the wind direction. (Wiki)

Their appearance is so interesting that everyone feels mystery around them. The clouds become spaceship shaped due to the forced ascent of stable air present over mountain ranges. Till the moment weather conditions are ambient, these clouds will hover over the mountains giving you all the reason to feel nature is beautifully mysterious.


35-year-old photographer, Vladimir Voychuk from Klin, Russia captured the flying-saucer shaped clouds in his favourite place to take pictures in Kamchata.

“It’s not the first time I’ve seen clouds like this, but it’s the first time I’ve been able to catch it on film,” he told Weather.


Vladimir’s favourite photo is the one with two clouds forming around the Klyuchevskaya Sopka volcano.

“Taking that picture took my breath away. It’s a pretty rare thing to capture on film because the cloud was formed not only by vapour but also the smoke coming out of the active volcano.”


“It takes me a long time to get there but it’s always worth it. I don’t think there’s anywhere in the world that’s better.”
