Re: Fwd: Fw: Mt. St. Helens at sunrise

Sorry, guys. I guess it was mistaken for a virus. But it was a great shot. Any ideas how I can pass it along?

Subject: Mt. St. Helens at sunrise

Mt. St. Helens, Washington, continues to spew ash, while it is forming
a lava dome
in the crater and still having minor tremors.

In this sunrise shot, she appears to be blowing smoke rings (and
anything so benign is welcomed, given recent history.)

What forms the "smoke rings" is the air flowing over the mountain
getting pushed up higher as it goes up and over the top.  The moisture
content and initial temperature are just right so that the
moisture condenses from a vapor to small particles at the higher
altitude.  When the moving air moves past the peak and comes down
again, the particles evaporate back to an invisible vapor.
The two "pancakes" describe that there are two layers of air for which
this is happening, thus making this awesome picture possible.
