Project 52, Week 13 {Personal Photography Project}

This week's theme is "Sky is the Limit".  Technically, I took this image yesterday with my Droid phone.  But I knew it was absolutely perfect for this week's theme.  Wouldn't you agree?  The photo really does not show the full depth of the clouds despite my attempts to pull every ounce of it through processing.  My oldest son and I were in the car driving along and I couldn't help but be a bit mesmerized looking at the sky.  The clouds looked as if they were painted on – large brush strokes, full of depth and texture.  Truly a sight to be seen in person.


The local weatherman had a brief mention about these clouds on the late night news, but I didn't catch the name or the phenomenon behind their formation.  So I did some searching online and found that these are a somewhat newly discovered cloud type which has been named Altocumulus undulatus asperatus.  "Undulatus" means to undulate (having a wavy surface or edge), but with this variety, the rolls are more like a chaotic wave formation, hence the name "asperatus", which is Latin for agitated.  You can read more about this here:

About Kim Hill

I’m passionate about my work and helping women feel comfortable in front of my lens. I want women to feel confident and sexy regardless of age or size. All women are beautiful and I'm here to help them see the beauty in themselves and the boudoir photographic experience is one step in that direction. I am dedicated to bringing a high-quality experience to the boudoir portrait session. My goal is to offer a fun yet relaxing environment where a woman can let down her guard, allowing that inner sparkle to shine. I’ve been a photographer for more than 25 years now. I started as a young child with my parents' 110 film camera, moved on to study photography in college, interned with a wedding photographer for a couple of years and then struck out on my own. I've been doing general portraits since 1998 and boudoir work since 2009. In addition to boudoir, I also offer high school senior portraits, fashion inspired sessions, and business executive head shots.
