What are these?

Before some wise "bum" gets in 1st - I know they are clouds



They remind me of cirrus due to the long wipsy streaks & looking very high up (possibly being blown by the jetstream?) in the sky.

Was hard to capture a decent image of the clouds due to the sunsetting - but can only describe it as a paintbrush had been streaked through the sky

ps: They looked to be rising almost straight up if that makes a difference

Cheers Andy.. So that would correctly mean as well the cirrus was high based and being affected (if thats the right word to use) by upper level winds / jet..

    High winds in the troposphere I would say. Was there a period of rain close to when you took that? If so it was probably a warm front.
