    Last July, Hans launched us into the wild ride of Cloudscapes Volume II with a most appropriate image titled Life Is A Carnival and wrapped us up with A Floating Refreshment. It holds a delightful and delicious collection. Whatever Volume III may bring remains to be seen, but I predict it will hold no less magic and mystery.

    For fans of paredolia, someone on the left side in the image below is…

    Love the frosted fern appearance of your Cloudscape #300, Michael, and the soft gentle curve of your Lensscape, Hans. And thank you for kind words, Hygge!

    Below is from a short series taken while I was in Kittredge. I’ll be heading back there in a couple of days. Fortunately, things are looking up for my sis — as will I be, keeping an eye on those Colorado clouds.

    Warm greetings to all from Colorado, where looking up definitely helps keep me from feeling down while continuing to care-take an ailing sister. It may be just my imagination, but clouds seem to dance a quicker jig across the sky here. They also feel much closer at this Rock Mountain high elevation of 6850′.

    As with my previous visit to this tiny town of Kittredge, I’ve had little time to share cloud photos, but have been taking moments whenever possible to savor the images posted to the forum and CAS gallery. Many thanks to all for the spirit refreshers.

    I am happy to see posts by you again Keelin. You composed a lovely haiku underneath a wonderful picture. Love it. You make your refreshers yourself I should say. Your sister must be very happy with you and I hope she is able to enjoy the clouds herself too to refresh her spirits likewise.

    Some clouds seem to unload lots of their energy over mankind. May this energy land on the right place in Kittredge.

    Hans, turning to the 1JUN2019 calendar page I see you have a vista too from a nearby field*. Everyone should have one, but especially Clouspotters – it is uplifting. For once I have observed something similar to a Forum image – undulatus was the trigger for my joining CAS; for twice I was at Hillier Gardens but had forgotten to take the camera.

    * Your picture link is in this post but does not seem to be displayed by CAS.

    Thanks Hygge. You are lucky being near Hillier Garden for vista’s. and yes I am also lucky with a place nearby were the view is not hindered by houses and other obstacles. And when I turn around on the spot were I took the picture that is now on the calendar I saw this:

    2018-06 Wolken_0147-2

    A quite unique place in the middle of Haarlem (or almost the middle) with the smallest polder of the Netherlands with Dutch windmill and cows underneath an undulated sky.

    Remember to always take your camera with you!

    N.B.  I am having to use F5 in Windows 10 several times this evening to stay logged in.

    Taken at yesterday’s Asperitas event over here. A strange edge is there above the horizon.

      F5 in Windows 10 needed again. If you mean that linear feature just above the lights, Hans, I don’t find that strange – saw something similar late afternoon today, interesting but not remarkable.

      Impressive asperitas and noctilucent.

    Interesting layers in your image, Hans, and a nice fallstreak framing in Michael’s above. Below is from a gathering in Colorado.

    I see above the fallstreak in #305 thehead of a dog, a labradot to be specific. Anyway a nice composition. As is the one from the gathering in Colorado by Keelin.

    Here is one taken with the cloudspotter app at the former asperitas event.

    So perfectly balanced, Hans. Love the juxtaposition of that single, centered tree with the multitude of dominating cloudlets above it. What an amazing Asperitas event you witnessed there.

    Thanks, Michael. In your image above, the rippled texture and translucent blue remind me of glassworks I’ve seen in art galleries where the artist has tried to mimic clouds and sky. Your cloudscape here is exquisite.

    Thank You Keelin! When I saw the undulatus and put a camera on them I was excited about the lighting, contrasts and structures. It all seemed to fall in place. That was a fun time with mother nature. Your grand sweeping Virga pay tribute to Mother Nature as well!

    Ah, very nice Keelin and Michael your virga impressions. And I can’t help that I see this lovely hedgehog in Feather And Fluff. Great movement in #306 Michael. Love them all!

    The sky looks even softer in your #308, Michael. Love the feel of it and the subtle colors.

    And danke je for kind comments, Hans. As to your most recent here, Neurotic Neurons is a most fitting title and possibly a match for my state when I see certain cloud formations. It then takes a breath or two to calm down.
