Beauty of Sunset

But in return they can be the source of great enlightenment. ”

Lenticular show

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!

Sunset

❤️ This image from November 2 Is fascinating to me. It’s such a mishmash! I took this at a local Schreiners wild animal farm near Lyle, Washington, with my phone.

I was on my way to The Dalles for a slideshow about a new book “Ever Wild” by Darryl Lloyd, with stories, photos, history in geology etc. about Mount Adams. I got distracted by a sunset.

On the way into the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center, I had to stop for one more picture.

By the way, here is the cover of the beautiful new book, and if you click on it it will open the website about the book.

White Salmon, Washington sunset last week, lovely Mt. Hood in the distance across the mighty Columbia River in Oregon.

another recent sunset in Trout Lake, Washington

Amazing old fashioned grapes 🍇 at my brothers place, on their way to become canned grape juice. They smelled heavenly!

Aspen trees in Conboy Lake National Wildlife Refuge near Glenwood, Washington.

Columbia River Gorge is finally getting good fall colors. I have really been noticing beautiful yellow Oak trees this year!

The green patch is part of Dickey’s Farm in Bingen, Washington.

Sunset in Glenwood

On my way back from the woods Wednesday evening, i witnessed this wonderful sunset over Mount Adams, from Glenwood, WA.

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 examine my priorities and take better care of myself!

June 18, 2016, on foot, walking the streets near home looking for a clear view for Mount Hood and the sweet standing wave clouds.

Same day, a drive up on a hill gave me this view of the Columbia River Gorge at sunset.June18-GorgeSunset-WS_5543

June 19th I was busy in the house and looked out the window and ran out into the street to catch these shots at the twilight hour.
