Wave Clouds over Northwestern Washington State

April 16, 2021

Summary Author: Joe LaCour

Looking Southeast from Dungeness, Washington, the setting Sun
illuminated these very interesting and complex appearing wave
clouds that formed as westerly winds blew over the Olympic Range
(off the right side of this photo). Between about 5,000 and 10,000 ft
(1,524 - 3,048 m), winds were measured at 40 to 60 knots. Wave
clouds such as these are often observed on the lee side of the
Olympics. Note the friendly visitor in the foreground, feasting on some
of our shrubs. Photo taken on February 21, 2021.

Photo Details: Leica M9 camera; 35 mm Summicron lens; f5.6; processed
with DxO.
