A Month for Sunsets

Just this week alone there have been several remarkable sunset.  Since the last post I have chased a couple more in White Salmon, Washington.  Funny, I use the term “chased the sunset” as a gauge to how I am doing…or chasing clouds… If I do not say that for awhile, it is time to examineContinue reading “A Month for Sunsets”

June Sunset in the Gorge

Recently I was treated to an amazing sunset over the Columbia River Gorge in White Salmon, Washington.  I drove to the top of a hill, met some new friends, and fell in love all over again with clouds and wind in my hair on a hill top as day deepened into twilight.  Do you knowContinue reading “June Sunset in the Gorge”

Smokey Sunset and Good Friends

Horsethief Butte, Lake, and Lennies :-)

What a day for a daydream… la la la!   This afternoon I took off on a chase the light and Lenticular cloud mission, driving East from White Salmon along Highway 14.  Unsure of what I wanted to catch or which way to go, I kept my eye on the sky, with frequent stops toContinue reading “Horsethief Butte, Lake, and Lennies :-)”

Another Fire Sky Sunset in the Gorge!

  I had a stupendous evening up on this hill in Washington not far from White Salmon, watching the sky flare up then fade back down.  Color lasted for over an hour in the clouds as though a magic wand had waved over them so they could hold the color. A bit later, looking SouthContinue reading “Another Fire Sky Sunset in the Gorge!”
