Hello Ramona,   Nice capture with the camera, but no, imho, what you’ve photographed isn’t AltCum lacunosus.  I believe you caught deteriorating altostratus  or even a lower stratus. My understanding of the  difference between lacunosus and deteriorating stratus is,,lacunosus is formed when colder air drops in...

Nice streets on #112 Michael. Too much boring blue skies over here too Keelin. Next one is one of my first encounters from the archives. It was a nice summer day with a lot of people going to the beach. At the moment I took...

From a recent asperitas event: a part of the sky where it has dissipated that much that it wont be recognized anymore as such. Just a tiny bit?

I agree Michael, too much contrast might spoil details. It is a matter of fine tuning. I am getting spoiled over here. After my former asperitas event even two times yesterday. Too much to share at once. The second appearance of asperias made me think...

Yes,Lighting is so critical to Asperitas. It helps to have some making it thru the clouds imho. I’ve learned to shoot Asperitas somewhat flat,,that is to say,,not with contrast dialed up. Details in the shadows get lost very easily with Asperitas. Dial down the contrast...

Nice knowing about the layers Michael. I checked my series of yesterday. Here is a overview of patches of asperitas on a lower layer and somewhat higher there seems to be a stratus layer. Oh and yes, I agree asperitas is better recognized looking form...

Thanks hygge!, I hope you witness Asperitas soon. It seems to me, if there are two layers of cloud overhead that improves the chances of Asperitas. Of course one can’t see two layers if the lower one is not transparent enough. Big Sky  gives an...

Michael, Hygge is pleased with your initiating this thread, not least for the marketing of CAS. And I think you have asperitas to the T in your photos. Hygge has never observed asperitas, but I seem to remember one photo in nearby Dorset, UK, so...
