The sky was azure blue, topped by scudding white clouds.”

Is this sentence correct with the use of "topped"?


Your sentence is correct and understandable although the description

topped by scudding white clouds

is not normally found.

The picture being painted is a blue sky with very high clouds, however clouds have a maximum ceiling of around 20,000 feet, not very high considering commercial airlines routinely fly above that.
