Sunday Photo(s)

In the Midwest, and some parts of the basin and range region, there are days when the clouds provide their own amazing scenery. Being able to see long distances without obstructions like hills and mountains allows an observer to watch clouds pass by for hours as the weather changes.

When you live on either the East Coast or West Coast of the United States, such opportunities are more limited. There are always hills or mountains around to block your view, as well as the occasional building. One of the better vantage points out here for cloud watching is the shore itself.

This is the view from Lincoln Park, in southern Seattle, just west of the ferry docks:

This picture, which I've shown here before, was from Redondo, in Des Moines, Washington, looking south toward Commencement Bay and Tacoma:

This one is from Saltwater State Park, which is also recycled, which I took as a front was passing by:

This is a look north along the Seattle waterfront, past the Seattle Aquarium:

Even if you're not interested in the boats, the people, and the wildlife along the shore, there's still plenty to look at most days.
