Altocumulus Blend

A beautiful mix of altocumuli drifted across the refreshingly clean sky of the coastal Pacific Northwest. This view was made possible by a segment of Ahlstrom's Prairie--a flat, wetland opening in the forest cover between Lake Ozette and Cape Alava. As happens so often near the Washington coast, fog and stratus from the neaby marine layer soon advected into the area, removing this view but offering other photographic opportunities.
