Wow, what a spectacular and beautiful cloud formation. Great picture, Keelin.
There is a quiet lovely serenity about this photo which takes my fancy a lot. The “face” in the centre of the cloud looking down upon the landscape below somehow encapsulates the serenity I find in this photo.
A most appealing photo, Steven. A quiet symphony of muted greys and whites which give a lovely sense of calm to the overall scene.
I like the careful inclusion of the boat in the bottom far right which gives scale to the overall view. I also like the fact you have carefully kept the horizon dead level. It rankles me a lot when I see an otherwise good photo dreadfully marred by sloping horizons.
Perfect. Lawrence said it all.
Thank you for the kind words. I, too, deplore sloping horizons. BTW, when I took this picture, I had no idea it was asperitas … having never heard the term before.
Awesome! You have very good luck to be there to take the picture, Ian.

As ever from you, Rosie, a lovely shot! Is this photograph taken in the vicinity of “The Dingles”?
Here in Yate, south Gloucestershire where I live (dwell!!) I see nothing like this type of cloud even though I keep an active eye on the clouds.
I have only just found your comment, Laurence. Yes, this is taken about seven miles from Dingle town, in West Kerry.
It is very unusual for us to get such a formation, our clouds this year in particular have been very mundane. I think these asperitas were pretty widespread on this day, a friend of mine in Peterborough also had them, we both put photos of them up on Flickr.
Can you see the beautiful cat’s face in these clouds?
