Parallel rows of cumulus clouds create a striped pattern over the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov (upper right corner). This phenomenon, known as cloud streets, stretches from the Ukraine in the North to  Turkey in the South. Parts of Russia (upper right), Moldova, Romania and Bulgaria (left side, from above to below) are also visible.

Upon opening the full image, all of Turkey and parts of the Mediterranean Sea are visible. A cloud phenomenon can be observed here as well: ridged or wavelike patterns, known as wave clouds.
