India – March 3rd, 2013

Popcorn clouds dot the skies over the northern part of Sri Lanka and the Palk Strait, which separate the island-nation from India. This type of cloud cover is likely an indication of plant growth: increased phytosynthesis releases water vapor into the air which then rises and cools, condensing into small, dotted clouds.
