      Michael started this topic as a tribute to the CAS cloud, Asperitas. Now volume 4 has its 100 posts, so this is the moment to start volume 5. Ruth had the Last Word in volume 4 while Michael is the most frequent contributor to this topic. Arizona offers good conditions to spot asperitas I suppose.

      Here is one from an older series of mine captured in France. It is like continually doing the wave in this topic.

      Ruth, We don’t get a lot of clouds but when we do, Asperitas is usually included in the hurly burly that makes it over the California mountains and into our deserts.

      Thank you for your kind words. Asperitas is the most fun cloud to work with. Its almost impossible to get a  bad shot. I check out with camera in hand when Asperitas is spotted.

      Hans,  once again thanks for your encouragement.  Asperitas has a big learning curve for me.  Close Up is reminding me of a sea shell.  Super shot.

      Michael,  you take the lead on this thread.  There must be a good way to read this cloud formation.  They love you.

      Ruth, Yes, itz all about lighting as to the weight of the picture. Contrast helps but to fill the clouds with light, goes back to Turner. Your last shot is some serious cloud. Im always taken by the passing silent drama of Asperitas.

      Below is about how far I should go with low contrast and still see the asperitas

      Ruth I gotta ask..is that not such a unique experience that words don’t capture the feel ..like being left speechless in its grandeur  and sorry that a mere camera can only record in 2 dimensions ? ..worthy of more than a 2nd look.

      Michael,  you are so right about that unique sensation of pure joy and fulfillment when an Asperitas is spotted.  A thrill that keeps on giving.  I like to go back to past photos to see what I may have missed or just to reexperience the moment.
