Sky Watch Friday to the mountains again

Among the joys of watching the sky--the sunrise, the sunset, the gathering storm, the rainbow, the moon the sun the stars--is the fact that we get a new serving each and every day. The joy of Skywatch Friday is that it is served up fresh from around the world. The team that carries on Dot's delightful idea of sharing the world's skies maintains the listing of current skies here.

As we came over the pass on our way to Mt. Rainier once again, it appeared that the clouds were cutting off the top of the mountain.

It was to be our only view of the mountain for this trip, as the clouds had lowered by the time we reached the next viewpoint along the way. It was another opportunity for the near views--the flowers, the waterfalls, and for this trip, the Paradise Inn's delightful architecture (which I will share one day soon.

How lucky you were! Both times I went to Mt. Rainier, you couldn't see the mountain -- that's what I was looking for when we went camping this last time.

BTW, could you change my addy to

for ODD SHOTS blogroll?

I also prefer to be called Paulie instead of PERBS but name of blog would be better to get people to remember it.

BTW, I have looked and looked and can't find the place where the author can change what is written in the "Leave Your Comment" area.

This is a stunning photo. The snow-covered mountain scene is lovely, but the flowers in the foreground make it so striking. Well done SWF!

Daryl said...

That is an excellent composition .. the contrasts are as if art directed .. this would be so nice on a calender or note card ...
