It is a bit of an adjustment getting use to cloudless skies again after taking for granted some great backdrops of clouds over the last few months. Of course blue skies are way more preferable than the brownish haze that kicks in mid-summer. When that happens it is time to head up to Lake Tahoe and areas along Hwy 395. Lenticular clouds seem to form daily in those areas. In fact, the famous “Sierra Wave” lenticulars dominate the skies throughout the summer and fall.
For now, it is spending time in the green foothills watching the first leaves and flowers come up, great color in the clouds during sunset (usually), and as photographers continually do – keep building that portfolio of photographs.
