Feb 2012 – Photo A Day – #8 Sun

Day 08 – Sun

Here in the Pacific Northwest, on one of our rare sunny days you will occasionally hear someone ask, “What is that thing in the sky??”.

Knowing that day 8’s photo theme was what is SO rare here, especially in the winter, I took the liberty of shooting a pic a day early… it was sunny of all things!!This is part of the series of photos I am working on of this valley.  I am overlooking the valley towards the Olympic Mountains.

As frequently happens when the sun shines here…

the air quality gets less then desirable.  Can you see the smog layer at the base of the mountains?

But then… ah, the gentle ocean breeze that keeps our air clean.

There I was, innocently putting things away in the kitchen when what do my wondering eyes behold…?

Yep!  The sun peeking out from behind the clouds!

It’s been raining here the past few days.

That is what we call “liquid sunshine”.
