Mount Saint-Helens’ summit spearing clouds.
Helper images for today.
Shot two years ago, at lake Tahoe on the Nevada side. A lovely place.
The climate of Central Texas is sub-humid, it’s not unusual for most river beds to go dry during the hot season. When rain falls, flash flood warnings are frequent, rivers and creeks come back to life for a few hours, sometimes flooding over roads and trails, before drying up until the next downpour.
Hamilton pool, a nice preserve North West of Austin, is fed by the Hamilton creek, falling into a pool and then running off to the Pedernales river. After a heavy downpour, the waterfall comes back to life and is magnificent.
The Hill Country, the region surrounding Austin, is on a porous limestone formation. Water runs down into the Edwards aquifer. That is the balance of water there.
Here’s Hamiton pool and its waterfall, alive.
An awesome display of clouds and colors.
At last, the cloud took a break this morning. The Sun, at times, hid behind patches of grey sky while humans sought the warmth of their beloved star. With the help of a short but heavy rain shower, a colorful rainbow cheered up soaked humans passing by.
Here’s the summary for today: a single rain shower from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm followed by a thick blanket of fog for about one hour. It’s very nice to take pictures of such weather conditions from the house, staying dry.
