On my way back from the woods Wednesday evening, i witnessed this wonderful sunset over Mount Adams, from Glenwood, WA.
After spending some lovely time trying and failing to catch some lightning in Southern Washington Cascades May 6, i finally gave up on that and just enjoyed where I was standing. Hope you enjoy it with me!
An evening progression of Standing Wave Clouds near Mount Adams Monday 3/26, starting in Trout Lake, Washington and driving to Glenwood further east and north.
Looking north in Trout Lake:
Looking south and east
And south and west:
Again looking north, halfway between Trout Lake and Glenwood:
And looking at the same clouds from Glenwood side, with a barely visible Mt. Adams:
Panorama directly North:
Panorama looking West from near the rodeo grounds:
And again a bit later
Looking South near sunset in Glenwood:
Including an iPhone video just for fun:
Last gasp from east side of Glenwood, looking North and West, including Mount Adams:
And a link to my Lennies album on my SmugMug site:
I have many more images at Starlisa.SmugMug.com as well, and this album in particular has the best quality images for ordering large prints, although you have to contact me directly to do so.
I’m sure you figured out by now that I’m fascinated by clouds, and how they change so quickly sometimes. These clouds in Glenwood yesterday had their own unique metamorphosis during the evening hours. I will be posting another series as well in a separate post.
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 know that feeling? If not, find yourself out there somewhere, by a river, on a hilltop, in a desert. Watch past the sunset, watch for the fading light, the appearance of first planets and stars… and just breathe it all in with Gratitude.
For anyone who misses my more regular posts, I have no internet at home and it has been challenging to get somewhere with everything to post, when I do pop on internet, I have so many things to catch up on I get very little done!
Anyone want to help with that? I have a Tip Jar, a donate button on my wordpress website here, on the right sidebar down aways. Working my way back into the world again slowly, it has been a slow process this year, and have not been able to really work much lately. Things are looking up however! I will be an intern this summer at the museum in Bingen on weekends… you should pop in there and check out the displays, make a small donation to the museum, or even become a member for $20 a year for individuals!

While the majority of my aurora shots have been from Trout Lake side of Mount Adams, I found this series of shots in my archives that had been forgotten, from Glenwood, WA. June 1, 2013 Mount Adams still features strongly. The first two shots were of something I have not experienced any other time; and […]
My friend invited me up to her birthday barbeque on High Prairie today, and I took a photo of her goose while I was there. Then, on the way back down the hill home, I caught these sunset images from Sunday night, last day of May 2015. These are processed minimally, I wanted to just share as soon as possible.
These images are taken about 30-35 miles apart, first one from a few miles away in Trout Lake, Washington, and the other from Hood River, Oregon. Perspective…. it appears more pointy from a greater distance!
…A warm happy light painted the landscape and sky, more gentle yet just as profound as the fiery colors a short time earlier. I was on a drive-about, the first one on my own in over a week, and this time of year I wish I could be out there on the road in random directions almost daily!
My journey today took me up Highway 14 to the Maryhill loops road, but I got there too late to drive the old Loops road during the two hours it was open this year. I wandered down by Stonehenge Memorial, then up the hill to Goldendale where I stopped by the Observatory and visited awhile. Taking random back roads I discovered an old meeting house of some sort, took portraits of some lovely cows in golden light, captured a small Lennie and a sundog over Mount Hood, and caught this amazing sunset and alpenglow as I started down the windy Glenwood road to where it crosses the Klickitat River. Heading on up the other side, I stopped briefly at the Glenwood store long after dark. Stopping again at the Rodeo grounds, and out came the camera one more time to shoot a dance event at the community building there and the stars and Lenny over Mount Adams behind the building. Tired and happy, I continued the drive on into Trout Lake to say goodnight to Roger and Connie before picking up some fresh raw cows milk from the Land of Milk and Honey Dairy Farm and heading on down Highway 141 to home in White Salmon. This was a good day, much needed time chasing light and enjoying the evening air.
