This is a page dedicated to all those wonderful pictures that people send me, plus I will probably put some of my own on here. The pictures on here will be mostly scenery

Lenticular cloudes, Mt Rainier

These are pretty awesome...the beauty in the Northwest...Enjoy..................

Mount Rainier is in Washington State. Amazing pictures. 14,500 ft. Those of us NOT living in Tacoma or surrounding areas will appreciate these pictures. I know a couple of you saw this on Friday. It was so amazing, people were pulling over on the freeway to take pictures.

Mt. Rainier puts on a show!

Our little dry streak is about to come to an end. But if you looked at Mt. Rainier today, you would have known that already.

Take a look at some of these incredible clouds captured over Mt. Rainier today.

Those are called "lenticular clouds" They’re caused when the air flow is just right so when it flows over Mt. Rainier, the air gets pushed upward where it cools and condenses into clouds. Depending on how smooth the flow is, you can get some amazing clouds formations as we've seen so far to day. Here is more information on what causes them from an earlier blog entry.

It's usually a sign of rain within 24 hours because typically the moist flow that precedes a storm around here is the perfect set up for these clouds.

Are they amazing or what! I have some more photos of clouds, a little bit like these, I think they were taken in Alberta. I will dig them out and add them. Shortly.

Here they are, the Alberta pics, a little like the ones above.
