Clouds

Late evening storm and clouds over the Coeur d’Alene Mountains.

  1. Storms over a mountain range often remind me of what I see from an airplane: both sunny weather and cloudy weather at the same time due to the wide-angle view of the world. Anything mixing up sun and shadow, sun and clouds, etc. is going to get my attention–especially if I’m standing on an exposed ridge and things are snapping and buzzing all around me.

    • That wide-angle view is certainly one of the reasons why I love the high country so much. Last summer I was a few thousand feet higher on this mountain when a thunderstorm hit with lots of lightning, heavy rain and high gusts of wind that dropped dozens of trees. What a spectacle! You would have loved it!

    • You were about due for some sunny weather! So far today we’ve had a few minutes of sun and a short snow storm.

      Happy Easter to you and your family too!

  3. What a great series. You, my friend, are blessed with some incredible vistas and the skill to make them come alive. I think I’m gonna need to visit sometime.

    Have a wonderful Easter.

    • On the left side, those clouds are a snow storm in progress. That often creates a pretty scene. Happy Easter to you too!

    • The clouds put on a real show all evening and I was high enough to see in several different directions.

    • This photo was taken in an almost opposite direction from the ones in the previous post, and about 15 minutes earlier. It was a good evening for cloud watching.

    • I especially liked this one too because it shows a little more of the terrain.
