Yesterday was one of those rare days that our revered Mount Rainier donned one of her stylish hats. They are called “cap clouds.” The scientific name is altocumulus lenticularis.
I was thrilled to be able to capture this moment. This type of cloud formation on Mount Rainier sometimes hovers all day, on or near the mountain. Sometimes they take on a UFO shape. They are quite mesmerizing and intriguing, to say the least.
Here is one more image I took from along the Tacoma Waterfront. The lighting was not great from that vantage point, but you can see a bit more layers of clouds at that particular time.
