Sunrise Shadow on the Clouds

Here’s a picture I snapped off our front porch. It shows the shadow cast by the rising Sun on Mt. Jefferson, in the Oregon Cascades on low clouds. Ca. 2015.

The weather to the east of the Cascades is usually clearer than the Willamette Valley where I live. This particular morning, the rising sun created a beautiful red cast on the clouds in the valley. I was delighted by the shadow. This spectacle only lasted about a minute before the angle of the Sun was no longer able to shine under the clouds.

Cool Clouds with Rainbow

Attached are 3 photos from this afternoon. We live just above Conesus Lake and as I was walking to the mailbox,I glanced up to see these amazing clouds, with a rainbow no less!!!
I ran into the house to grab my i phone 5 S (I Know…ancient technology!!) and did the best I could to capture the formations and the rainbow. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!!
