I learned, after making this photo, that the cloud halo is a lenticular cloud.
I knew at the time that Mt. Ranier is part of the Ring of Fire, and a relative to Mt. St. Helens. In other words, a volcano. Recently saw a fascinating bit on I believe the Weather Channel projecting what the nastiness will be when (not if, as Ranier is considered to be an active volcano despite no recent eruptions) the volcano blows.
::pause for reflection::
I know a lot of people in that area...
IN Other News: yesterday I did post a Pic'o'Day, only the crosspost process failed (I post the Daily Pic using DreamWidth, same user name). Today that worked, although I've not viewed LJ yet to see did it post for today's date, or yesterday's date.
