Clouds Over Powell Lake

Our Bellingham skies have been gray and misty this week so I reached back in my archives of Powell Lake photos. I love clouds and Powell Lake is a great place to find some beautiful examples. Here's the view looking south through First Narrows with the glacial eroded Bunster Hills in the distance.


Storm clouds are brewing to the north. Lenticulars like this big guy mean winds and turbulence.

On a calm day there are clouds above and clouds below.

Wish I was there for real. -- Margy

  6. Marvelous photos ... every one! They make me long to say 'hit it' and step out on the water with my slalom ski ... though I've not done that it more than 10 years now.
    Hugs and blessings,

  13. Beautiful series of photos. I love the composition of the first one and the amazing clouds in the second. All beautiful.

    I enjoyed scrolling down the page too. Your last sky watch was awesome as well. I love the idea of solar powered Christmas lights. I'd love to solarize my home. One day...
