Strong Storms Over the Olympic Mountains

June 01, 2021

T Storm Olympics

Photographer: Joe LaCour

Summary Authors: Joe LaCour; Jim Foster

I captured this amazing cumulonimbus cloud formation looking south
from my home near Dungeness, Washington. Though thunderstorms
aren’t common in the Pacific Northwest, on occasion, convective
activity above the Olympic Mountains during the late spring and summer
promotes instability in the lower atmosphere. With sufficient lift and
wind shear, strong updrafts and downdrafts may form, one of the
hallmarks of severe thunderstorms. Note that in order to show the
delicate detail that wasn’t visible on the original un-processed color
image, this photo, taken on June 7, 2020, has been processed with
DxO PhotoLab 3.

Photo details: Leica M9 camera; 35mm Summicron lens; f2; ISO; 160 sec.
exposure; f/11.

Dungeness, Washington Coordinates: 48.1468, -123.1232
