The clouds were doing their thing today.
Richard Shilling's Land Art
richard shilling makes art using only that which he finds in nature - broken twigs, fallen leaves, mud, tree sap, torn bark - and returns it in creations he ‘leaves’ for others to find.
Land artists take naturally occurring materials in the wild and rearrange them into works of art. That’s what Richard Shilling does, using no glue, string, or any other materials. You can see some prime examples of his ingenuity at the link. Shilling makes excellent use of translucent leaves, flexible stems, and stones to make effective sculptures. The wind often sweeps away his works within minutes of completion, but that’s okay with Shilling because it is an affirmation of the transient nature of life.
Good Morning Seattle by hjl
This was a fortunate angle while making the turn above Puget Sound when the landing pattern is from the north. Those really are a second set of mountains in the distance, poking up through a broad-but-thin deck of clouds and haze that has some gaps above Seattle. So you’re seeing the city and Lake Washington from under the clouds, the bottom of the mountains are obscured by haze, and the tops of the mountains are clear, because it’s mostly above the clouds.
