365 Nature – Day 343

In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Learn more about the project and see all the 365 Nature posts.


Looking out the south facing windows of our second floor rooms is one of my favorite views. We can’t see Lake Washington or the Olympic mountains, nor can we see the city. What I can see are the clouds. Most of our weather comes from the southwest and every time I look out the window I see a new view. I can see the sunrise during these winter mornings and the sunsets, all from the same window. At dusk I can watch the thousands of crows fly over our house on their way to the roost. One day I’d love to set up my camera and to a time lapse during one day.

Today I noted the clouds early in the morning and decided to take a photo of the same view each hour while I was home. Above is a set of photos taken one hour apart.
