Skies and Mountains and Rivers = Beauty

These first 3 images are from recent weeks out at Trout Lake, Washington at the Trout Lake Natural Area Preserve near town.   As you can see in the photo with people this is not a deep lake, but rather a wide spreading stream through a marshy area.  In high runnoff times the body of water appears to be much larger and makes lovely reflections on occasion.

THESE next couple of shots were taken last night in the Columbia River Gorge, where long bands of smooth layers of the lenticular fashion stretched north and south across the Gorge as they are prone to doing at the beginning of weather change activity.
