    Some days, the sky is incredibly clear around here. The air is so clean you can see hundreds of miles away. At some points I can see a mountain range on each side of me, both far, far in the distance, yet very clear.



    Not so clear on other days







    I love when clouds run into mountains. Unfortunately the best shots would be from the peak of this hill on the highway, and there's no good place to pull over and take a photo there. These'll have to do...



    Zoomed in on the clouds wisping around the peak of Mt Rainier...



    I could stare at the sky all day here...



    I am coming to like this digi cam This fall I'll be taking a computational photography course... implementing some algorithms for altering digital images and such.. should be fun!

    Great timing on this theme as I had encountered a great sunset last Sunday. So here is another offering of the Pacific Northwest sky!

    Thanks! When I took the picture, I did not even see the bird, I just had a look at the islands.

    When I then saw the picture on my PC, I was really surprised to see a bird at the top...

    There are allot of great pictures here already. Maybe, some more will come???

    Another sunset:


    I like it when very clean white clouds are silhouetted so crisply against an intense blue sky:



    And when the sky feels big and you feel small:

    We've had either non-eventful rain, or high humidity with no sun (and just gray skies, nothing even showing form in the clouds). Bah... All these pictures make me jealous. Very, very nice.
    They say, "Practice makes perfect," yet they also say, "Nobody's perfect". I don't get it.

    Photos of clouds might be easy to take and some people dismiss them as "once you've seen a couple of these you've seen them all" but I disagree. I love pictures of clouds. Yours are great, Datura.

    Thank you Raffles. These were taken right from my front yard pointing towards the west, afternoon or sunset time. Clouds are the most beautiful thing around these parts. Ever changing and inspiring to write stories and paint pictures. There is a whole world of interpretation possible, ever shifting.

    I have in my plans actually a slew of canvases with the island's skies, if ever the time will let me

    A big wow tonight

    As I prepared dinner and looked out the window, this very eery light bathed all things. That surely was a signal for me to snatch the camera and run down to the beach. A huge reward. These pillowy clouds form before storms sometimes, and this was a particularly gorgeous formation. Behind me against the orange lit wall of dark clouds stood a rainbow and the finale happened when the sun dipped into the sea.
