Mt. Rainier and Lenticular Clouds - Dec. 2008 copyright: JMM

What a Show!

Sunday, August 3rd, was a really nice day.  Warm but not too uncomfortable.  I shot this pic of the clouds around 8:30 or 9 that morning.

I went downtown to cure my weekly 'Sunday blues' with retail therapy and did a few errands before getting home in the early afternoon.  As the day wore on, the light was changing so much in the house that I kept going outside to shoot photos of the beautiful clouds.

I heard some rumbles of thunder out this way, which is west.

Meanwhile the eastern sky looked like this.

Then the west clouds changed within minutes.

And we had a downpour.

Then a rainbow

With more dramatic cloud shows for another couple of hours.

Raindrop reflecting trees, clouds and sky.

This was what was reflecting in the shed.

Then finally at sunset, a totally clear sky but for this bright pink cloud.


  1. I love photos of the sky - no two pictures ever looks the same as the sky is forever changing.

  2. I've looked at clouds from both sides now. . .

    Endlessly intriguing.

  3. Wonderful shots JoJo. I love watching clouds too - especially the dramatic ones just before a storm. So awesome!

  4. Fab shots :) Anybody else make pictures in the clouds - could see lots of birdies in the first picture :)

  5. Beautiful JoJo! I always love seeing your photos. You're got such a gift for photography.

  6. Your studies of clouds are always beautiful and fascinating. Did you manage to see any meteors in the Perseid shower?
