Skywatch Friday

Well, well, how about this? It's my first Skywatch Friday post. Woo-hoo!


I thought the lenticular cloud over Mt Rainier sort of looked like a halo? Or maybe a flying saucer-disc-sort-of-thingee? Lenticular clouds are cool any which way you look at them...above the mountain, or in the reflection in the water. Oh, yeah, I love that mountain and its effect on the sky and clouds and people and ...

For more great photography of the sky, check out photos posted by folks here. It's cool cuz they got rulz and they're not into including commercial sites as links.

  5. Aerie-el,

    Looks like you nailed your first sky watch post, if you ask me. That is a great cloud shot! Hmm...the lake isn't bad either, or the mountain, or the...I have to agree, we are spoiled here in the NW!

    Catherine, oh thank you, that is sweet of you to say. I think our mountain is beautiful from every angle, and it looks sooo different from different places around it. This afternoon it is just as beautiful as the posted photo, except now there is a really wide lenticular cloud over it. Oops, gotta run and grab my camera!
