Lenticular Clouds at Mt Rainier


Mt Rainier put on quite a display yesterday..
These are called "lenticular" clouds and they are created when air gets pushed upward where it cools and condenses into clouds. Pretty amazing! Add this to one more thing I love about Washington State- amazing!

Who took this picture? I think you told me on the phone that you got it off of another website. Nancy...In cases like this you should credit the photographer if possible. Just an ethics call.

Usually I do cite the source- I took it off of the KOMO news website. I agree, it is important to give credit where credit is due.
