Textured Sky with Asperatus, South Icelandic Coast

The wild coastline of Iceland never fails to offer moments of wonder and amazementjust give it a few minutes.  Land, sea and sky all play nicely together here, on an afternoon when most tourists simply saw a solemn sky, and this cloud and sky enthusiast experienced good times.  The sea stacks off Reynisfjara here punctuated a splendid collection of clouds, from midlevel asparatus undulatus above (alternatively known as asperitas), with layers of scud and soft cumulus, all in front of a distant, slate-gray/blue stratus deck.
