Stratus

You can't get more stratuslike than that. Nice, flat, uniform lighting throughout the cloud and snow, and trees and building make a good contrast. Photo from Pequot Lakes Elementary School, Pequot Lakes, MN. 1st place in January 2003 S'COOL cloud photo contest.

Another nice, flat, uniform cloud, a bit brighter than the one above. The sun's disk is barely visible at the center of the photo. If it were a bit brighter, it would probably be classified in the altostratus category. Photo from St. James School, Falls Church, VA. 2nd place in January 2003 S'COOL cloud photo contest.

This is a nice, thick, overcast stratus cloud. It has a bit more texture than the other two. Photo from Audubon Elementary School, Rock Island, IL. 3rd place in January 2003 S'COOL cloud photo contest.
