2018 Weather Workshop Video


I was asked to share my presentation video from the PNW Weather Workshop to the public this year.  I have also shared this video with the Hansville Community Center and the North Kitsap Puget Sound Anglers Association.  It is a 12 minute video that shows some of the beauty that has happened in the last year.  I cannot put it on Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook or Twitter because of copyright protection of the music.  I am probably at risk of a lawsuit for using and sharing this music... but… In my opinion, I am not only promoting the beauty of Mother Nature (more importantly), but I am also promoting the incredible music from the artists listed below as well as others.  For the record, I have NOT made a dime from this video.

George Winston
Phillip Wesley
Eric Clapton
John Barry

The closing song...  "Tears In Heaven" is a song that I ask you all reflect on.  The words and music are beautiful.  Eric Clapton wrote it to his 4 year old son who tragically fell to his death from a window in their 95th story apartment.  Chances are... We have all lost some important people in our lives recently.  I know I have....  My dream... and prayer.... is that heaven is as beautiful as the morning Mother Nature gave to my camera that day.

This video file is very large and I don’t want to reduce the quality too much. 

The best video (largest file) will be in 1080 here:  http://www.skunkbayweather.com/WeatherWorkshop2018.mp4

A slightly smaller file that "may" play well on slower connections is here: 

I really don’t want to reduce the quality below 720.  I am sorry to those who cannot play this video due to internet connection speed.

This is an image from the end of the video...

Incredible Sunset....

Last night we had a remarkable sunset.  The images from all over were incredible.  This is an image from Cam1....


Here is a time lapse of the sunset into this morning's sunrise...  and a rainbow from yesterday.

Sun Dog Sunrise......

This morning we had another awesome sunrise, but with an added bonus....  A brilliant Sun Dog that seems to chase the sun across the sky.  A Sun Dog is a vertical rainbow caused by the sun's reflection on ice crystals in high cirrus clouds.....



And a single image from the video above....


And...  A bit earlier in the morning we had a nice meteor....

A Few Time Lapse Videos and Images....

Thought I'd share a few images and time lapses from the last few days.

On the 21st, we had a pretty active sunrise...  A LOT of wind shear and colors....


This morning's sunrise was awesome....



My night camera has picked up a few meteors the last few nights....

Sunset, Sunrise and a Very Starry Night....

It's been so long since we have seen blue in the sky, pink at sunset and sunrise and stars overnight....  It was almost an out of body experience.....  Thought I'd share some of the images and time lapses since yesterday afternoon....

This is a repeat, but it's worth repeating in my opinion....  Besides that, I am old enough that I have earned the right to repeat myself....  

Last night's aerial sunset...











Another sunset shot....


Here is a time lapse of Sunset into Sunrise...


And...  One more thing we haven't seen for quite a while...  A beautiful starry night....
