Lenticulars and Sunset July 3, 2014

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 acrossContinue reading “Lenticulars and Sunset July 3, 2014”

Dickey Farms Delight

Along with many other kids in town from my generation, my first summer job was picking beans at Dickey Farms in Bingen, Washington. Hard work, yes, but so rewarding to have a little of our own money for an occasional treat or to help buy our own clothes for school. Now, as a photographer whoseContinue reading “Dickey Farms Delight”

Saturday Night Sunset Chase

After another beautiful day on February 22 with Lennies over the Gorge and puffy white clouds in blue sky, I made an impulsive decision at sunset to drive north towards Glenwood. I started a little later than I should, and made it to the edge of Conboy Lake national wildlife refuge just at the peakContinue reading “Saturday Night Sunset Chase”

Horsethief Butte, Lake, and Lennies :-)

What a day for a daydream… la la la!   This afternoon I took off on a chase the light and Lenticular cloud mission, driving East from White Salmon along Highway 14.  Unsure of what I wanted to catch or which way to go, I kept my eye on the sky, with frequent stops toContinue reading “Horsethief Butte, Lake, and Lennies :-)”

A Winter’s Day in White Salmon

Husum Falls on the White Salmon River in Winter, February 8, 2014. The water under the falls was very green where the water was deep and churned up by the falls. February 9. 2014 Third day of shoveling, the snow has changed as temperatures warm above the low teens where they have been recently. EachContinue reading “A Winter’s Day in White Salmon”

Random Bits of Pink

I just felt like some COLOR was appropriate, rich vibrant color to counteract the Ice and bitter wind outside. A friend treated me tonight to an amazing day at Bonneville Hot Springs Resort, and tonight coming home was the coldest it has been in awhile. So, for all of you anxious for warmer and brighterContinue reading “Random Bits of Pink”

Another Fire Sky Sunset in the Gorge!

  I had a stupendous evening up on this hill in Washington not far from White Salmon, watching the sky flare up then fade back down.  Color lasted for over an hour in the clouds as though a magic wand had waved over them so they could hold the color. A bit later, looking SouthContinue reading “Another Fire Sky Sunset in the Gorge!”

The Sunset that blew away the Northwest

Just before Christmas Lennies

I was thrilled on the 22nd to get my early Christmas present!  You know me and my Lenticular clouds.  I was pretty excited to find these in Trout Lake for sunset.  Next day was rainbow day with wild rain, and the third day was sunny and blue skies!  Weather change indicators these are often called.Continue reading “Just before Christmas Lennies”
