Tonight was amazing, lines of mountain wave clouds, stacks of lenticular clouds like ducklings in a row. One stack at the top of each wave of fast moving air.
I raced to my favorite spot, over looking Mount Adams, and found this scene. enjoy!
Such a lovely day on the crick out back, Standing there in delight while when gusts of wind grabbed the trees and shook them, sending Cascades of Cottonwood leaves falling all around me.
Leaves landed in the creek and drifted by, yellow hearts against the reflections in the slowly moving stream.
The sun would playfully hide behind the stormy clouds and Peek out at unexpected moments, and all of a sudden everything was brilliant yellow and red and green and blue.
Recently I was sitting out at the lake and listening but not taking too many pictures. It seemed as though any sunset was going to fizzle, when suddenly all the color came back!
Here is a series of images taken on 4/20/18, from Trout Lake to White Salmon, WA. These are phone shots. I hope you enjoy, and I hope you find yourself grateful today for this wonderful planet we all share. Thank you for your visits, feel free to share my posts!
Many of you have seen my GoFundMe campaign by now, and I will be picking up my car today I think. The generosity and kindness of friends, family and strangers has been overwhelmingly positive, and I am filled with gratitude.
the photo, taken this month in Glenwood, Washington, will take you to my campaign page on GoFundMe if you want to help out with licencing, winter tires, and insurance now! I have the costs of the vehicle covered. The link will open in a new window or tab in your browser.
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!
