Mountain Skies

With snow showers flurrying their way through London and the news forecasting direness for us all, here's some real wintry weather - snow covered mountains and bright winter skies near Lee Vining, the little town that sits on the western edge of Mono Lake.

The cirrus rainbow in this one is rather beautiful, especially the way it illuminates the rest of the cloud around it.

I rather like this second one, with the bright sun just behind a thin layer of cloud and contrails.

Regarding the second one, the radiance, in combination with the unexpected flow of the cloud line into the hillside, makes it particularly cool.

How beautiful! I love that part of the world so much. It warms to heart to see somebody else appreciate it, too.
