While the weather posed no threat the clouds just seemed to grow and grow as the day went on.

And although the landscape was brilliant the combination of earth and sky called out to be seen as one. The ridge-line and sky combined to become the one that they already are.

The clouds weighed on the earth like a weight on this October day yet colors sprang forth to brighten the landscape.

Just a bit of snow lingers around the thermal features on Firehole drive although the next round is on its way.

When Clouds Move

Lamar_river_view_1

The October clouds just seem to move faster, get bigger and always seem just  a bit darker. A time between the bluebird skies of summer and the socked-in days of winter. A little of each yet nothing like either.

October clouds reflected in the Lamar Valley.

 

Happy Friday and a good weekend to all.

Iron Spring Creek

Spending time watching the clouds and light change on at Iron Spring Creek.  Autumn grass and sky were on display and ever changing just as the weather was that day.

While looking south the clouds filled then left the sky to various degree in just 15 minutes time.

Then turning to look north the sky was gray and filled with soft clouds…

…but within 15 minutes a bit of blue filled the sky and color filled the landscape  at Iron Spring Creek on this early October day.
