Subject: What A View !!

Mt. St. Helens at sunrise.

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

Here in this sunrise shot above and below, 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 these awesome pictures possible.

A scene you will probably never get to see, so take a moment and enjoy God at work at the North Pole. This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point. And, you also see the sun below the moon. An amazing photo and not one easily duplicated. You may want to save this and pass on to others.

Can You Guess What This Is?
It's a Coconut Crab climbing a tree. The coconut crab climbs coconut palms to get at coconuts, which it breaks open with its powerful pincers and eats. It is found on the islands of the South Pacific and Indian oceans

Hurricane Katrina Over Mississippi

These pictures below were made by a man in Magee , MS . where the eye of the storm passed thru.

Looking at all these magnificient pictures one cannot, but think they cannot just happen on their own...some great creator must have made them possible and who that creator is? ALLAH!

What beautiful photos! Incredible!

Your morning recipe sounds very healthy! I'm going to have to give it a try. I would have never thought to blend together an apple with celery and a tomato!

Have a wonderful day,

Yes, aren't they?

I received them in my email and was allowed to post in my blog. They are absolutely awesome!

Those were amongst the great creations of God... and someone captured them for us to see...and share in this blog.

So, how was the taste of those 3 blended together?
