Marshmallow Man

This Cumulus Congestus dwarfs the apartment building next to mine. It was amazing to watch it roll in and it reminded me of the scene in Ghostbusters where the giant Stay Puft marshmallow man comes lumbering down the street.

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.

Sunset Surprise

This gorgeous vista greeted me in a Portland parking lot! A most appreciated gift. Crepuscular rays against Altocumulus … a divine quality that truly lifts the spirits.

Portland Riverwalk

The Willamette River winds through Portland offering a welcomed water element to the city vibe.

Watercolors

A light mist in the air following heavy rain creates a watercolor look to the fall trees. A city street becomes a Monet!

Frozen Cemetery

This hilltop cemetery in NW PDX seemed especially eerie after a blizzard. But what a photo op! Love the iced trees against the silver-grey sky.
