Have you noticed? Everything — EVERYTHING — moves! As the Psalmist of old Bible times sang…. 3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
4 What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him? Psalm 8:3-4 (NKJV)
At the other end of the size scale, but having amazing similarities to the stars, exist atoms — comprising the stuff of which all created material (even air) consists. And, within the atoms, electrons, quarks, and other bodies too small for me to imagine, whip around constantly. Also, each in its appointed path.
Which brings us back to subjects of our recent delight… mountain peaks of the Cascade Range and their ever-moving light, shadow and colors as the earth whirls around the sun and spins on its axis.
This morning’s views of the Rainier webcam go something like this:
Fascinating to me (and you may say, “Well, duh!) that sunrises and sunsets continually chase each other around the earth each 24 hours, and that as each passes, and from each person’s viewpoint the scene it is different. As you see, I’m without words to say this adequately. But each human on earth receives an individual view as daylight arrives and then retreats again at sunset. What a caring Artist we serve!!!
If you click on the webcam throughout the day, you will see the shadows of the little trees in the foreground gradually move. Earth is spinning, remember. And in the evening you may see images like these below, saved the last few days.
Or you might see something like this if you happen to be near Olympia, WA and light and weather and season and time of day come together just right. (No, Rainier is not blowing its top. The sun is behind the Mountain just before sunrise, and that’s the Mountain’s shadow reflected on the clouds.)
You never know what you might see, so keep clicking on the Rainier webcams HERE, and checking back to this blog.
P.S. Speaking of movement, a chill has arrived from the North. My car is sheathed in ice today, and all outdoors here seems to be covered with ice and thick frost (Sometimes called “rime ice”, I believe). So I haven’t gone to church or anywhere else today except to visit y’all via photos. Seems I should don some warm clothing, try to thaw off the windshield, and go out with the camera while the lacework remains. Ya think?
HAPPY SABBATH !! :} Smiles
