known informally as asperatus clouds, this atmospheric phenomenon gets its name from the latin aspero, which roman poets used to describe the sea as it was roughened by the cold north wind. 

though the cause of their formation remains unknown, it is likely that the undulating and lumpy underside is a result of warmer, moister air from above and colder, dryer air from below air meeting at the boundary between the lower and middle atmosphere.

when high level wind passes over rolling terrain, you get the same wavy effect as on the surface of water. but despite their ominous appearance, asperatus clouds tend to dissipate without a storm forming.

Psychology of Colors

  What color is “the love”? What exactly does the color black stand for? Is black a color? What color combination is reflecting “vanity” ?   I recently came across Eva Heller´s book ” Wie Farben wirken”,which examines the psychological effects and symbolisms of colors. Each color creates it´s own mental connection,and the combination of certain  colors in a specific percentage can reflect a feeling or a symbol. This series is illustrating 10 color combinations out of 200 you can find in the book.  (artist statement)
