Sunset Surprise

This gorgeous vista greeted me in a Portland parking lot! A most appreciated gift. Beauty truly can be found anywhere. Advertisements

Wings

A soaring bird calls to my sense of adventure. This beautiful view of Bellingham Bay is just a short walk from historic downtown Fairhaven.

Sky Drama

Nothing more magical than watching cloud patterns unfold … like these Castellanus plumes.

Fleeting Pileus

All clouds by nature are fleeting and the Pileus most of all. Spotting this smooth puff was a rare, wondrous moment. Similar in shape to Lenticularis and cap clouds, Pileus briefly appear atop billowy Cumulus. Another cloud captured in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Sky Show Act One

No matter the shade or season, clouds take my breath away. Yesterday provided an exceptionally diverse show from my balcony. Shown here, powerful Cumulonimbus before the afternoon rain. SW Portland.

Sky Show Act Two

One hour later, a shape shifting blended wonder. Same balcony. Same awe. I especially enjoyed this combo of clouds. Altocumulus, Cumulonimbus – puffs and waves, ripples and wisps.

Up Close and Personal

I never met a cloud I didn’t want to spend more time with. Fascinating creatures. Window seat FL to OR.

In Plane View

A six hour flight of non-stop sky delight! Alaska airlines Orlando to PDX.

Tropical Beauty

Palm trees and billowing cumulus create a stunning scene. An oil painting that won’t melt even in the 95┬░ heat. Winter Springs FL.

From the Beginning

It’s easy to see why the immenseness of the sky has been an inspiration for artists and poets, inventors and explorers since the first human looked up. (Evening sky in Seattle.)

Good Morning, Seattle!

Ahhh … the day begins with beauty. View from deck looking out over Lake Washington.
