    A friend of mine took the following photo of a interesting cloud formation taken in North Cornwall and is interested to know if it has a name.

    it's a bit blurry, but on first glimpses it looks like a cumulus congestus breaking through a layer of stratocumulus

    I agree with that - it looks like we have three basic levels, with the bottom being bits of cumulus with a layer of stratocumulus above with the highest being patchy altostratus. It makes we wonder what gave the CC the energy to continue its upward thrust,  The cloud cover does not look very favourable for thermals.
