Horizontal lines bring stability thus calm. Vertical lines suggest change, instability and between the two the clouds create all sorts of realities. #109 is a shot of remnants of  Asperitas. Fortunately the formation swept back and around  giving me a chance to capture its decay....

Love those Soft Clouds, Hans. And the skyscapes you’ve been sharing in your recent series of Asperitas are wonderfully surreal. Hope you have more of them. A different kind of softness in the image below. Feathery Fan

Love the photos of Asperitas being collected here, Michael and Hans. Layered emotions, subtle mood shifts – poetry in motion! – all captured with keen eyes for composition. Kudos to you both! Send some of those wavy winds my way, if you can?

Yes, you are right Michael, it was a pretty neat day. The show lasted three or four hours. The asperitas was followed in that timeframe by lenticular formation with seemingly some asperitas characteristics leftover. I posted some of those in the Color Thread, for example...

Fronts either coming in or  retreating sometimes provide for the multi-layers of wind not all going in the same direction..which produces great displays as the orientation of wind direction changes over the day. You captured a pretty neat day Hans! Another shot showing the physics ...

Thanks Keelin. Nice shapes and composition has your Arched Pasageway. It makes me think of the Squared Undulatus I posted in the asperitas thread. This one seems to have the same features. Anyway I love it for its smooth arch that seems to embrace the...

Yes I had Michael. Particularly the day that started with asperitas and gradually became lenticular with exploding Holmboe and all kinds of strange lenticular-like shapes like a Chicken Abductee or a Talking Sorting Hat. It took from 9:00 until 11:15.  On the gallery I posted...

Looks like you had a great time in France, Hans. I think if you look closely you’ll  see undulations within undulations in a lot of Asperitas shots. Heres an easy going Asperitas shot. Arizona Asperitas# 128

Another French asperitas, showing undulatus between the larger asperitas waves. The appearence of these undulating smaller parts in between the larger lines struck me. Ever seen that way? Squared Undulatus

…. and today your Cirrus Intortus serves in the Cloud-A-Day service, Keelin. Congrats. Lenticulars with remnants of asperitas (I think…..)

Keelin, how nice and surprising to read about your fantastic dream. You say you are from the other side of the campus (what a nice way of saying you are not in math!) and where others “on that side of the campus” have bad dreams...

Are you in math Keelin? ” A ”tilde” transformation transforms the timedependent Schrödinger equation into an inhomogeneous equation containing smoothed initial conditions. The approach is much simpler than the Schwartz’s theory of distributions.” Love it! And Michael turns out to be a cloud whisperer! So...
