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!
This gallery contains 15 photos.
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 shots are all from January 24, 2014, a sunny day but with lingering fog that returned at sunset. There will be more from this day!
Lately I have been randomly dropping into older files from the last couple years looking for treasures that had been forgotten. Here are a few of Lennies (my name for lenticular clouds) over Mount Hood and some interesting fluffy wannabe lennies over Mount Adams. Judging from the rest of the day, the clouds over Mount Adams probably were more distinctly lenticular in form a bit earlier in the day.
All images except the vertical shot are also links to the corresponding image on Smugmug.
This first one, same as the featured one, was shot from White Salmon, Washington, looking south into Oregon.
These next three are all of Mount Adams taken from Hood River, Oregon looking north into Washington
More information on Lenticular cloud formations:
Altocumulus lenticularis. These formations are caused by wave motions in the atmosphere and are frequently seen in mountainous or hilly areas. They are often called wave clouds. They may be triggered off by hills only a few hundred metres high and may extend downwind for over 100 km. The cloud elements form at the windward edge of the cloud and are carried to the downwind edge where they evaporate, as can be seen here. The cloud as a whole is usually stationary or slow moving.
You can view a very large set of Lenticular Cloud images here on my Flickr site, just click on this link

Have fun browsing!
I always did love this shot looking up at a passing storm cell from up at Timberline… such wild and wooly weather these mountains create around themselves. Normally I am seeing the Hood from far away in White Salmon, Washington, watching the clouds dance around the peak or bury her completely. This is one of the many faces of Mount Hood from my last post
