Observing turbulence being created

This is a photo of Mammoth Lakes California taken this morning from about 11,000'

The SW flow is 40kts from left to right. Notice the smooth contours of the clouds on the left but after colliding with Mammoth Mountain in the center the flow on the right is now disturbed and no longer smooth.  The air here is smooth in places and turbulent in others as this visual shows.
