Seemingly all over the Pacific Northwest on July 3, the sunset lit up the sky with wonderful wild fire colors. Prior to that over Mount Hood and Mount Adams, and continuing downwind to the East of White Salmon, WA, long strings of Altocumulus lenticularis clouds stacked up in clusters running primarily North and South across the Columbia River Gorge. This set of images was all taken in the late evening of that day, from above White Salmon. Below at the bottom of the post are some links regarding lenticular clouds, weather, and atmospheric optics.
As I drove through White Salmon, Washington there were streamers overhead, and long stacks of lenticular plates building up along the ridges East of town.
Later in the Evening as I was coming down Snowden road, the sky caught on fire after I thought it was going to fizzle (yes, I should have known better! ) I was not in the best location overall, but I am still tickled with some images I captured.
ALSO, BE AWARE I do also sell images on prints, metal prints (aluminum) Canvas Gallery wraps, Thinwraps, and Standouts. It works best to contact me directly to ask about a specific image, but my Galleries Link is a good place to start looking 🙂
