Cloud Whisperer by GroovyGeek Cloud Whisperer by GroovyGeek
Samuel Boardman State Park at sunset. Yes, I know the title makes no sense, read on to see why.

It has been endless blue skies here for multiple weeks now, making it difficult to get good images. This particular image was the last one from earlier in the year that I managed to get in somewhat transition weather. For several weeks in a row I have camped on Mt. Hood hoping against hope that the weathermen are wrong. Unfortunately, it does not take much to be a weatherman away from the coast in the PNW - 90% chance of clouds and rain in the winter, 90% chance of clear blue skies in the summer.

Thank you, it is one of my favorite images, where I made something out of nothing. The beach this is on is quite unremarkable, and I spent the sunset in a fruitless attempt to compose something around a rather pedestrian concept - some arrangement of rocks pointing towards the sunset with .1s shutter speed to smooth the water. Nothing seemed to quite click, so right around sunset I threw in the towel and started walking towards the car. Then I jumped over the stream in this image and something clicked.
