Foto Finish: Show Us Where You Live


The optional theme for this week's Foto Finish is "Show Us Where You Live".  Here's my entry:


You may recognize this as Mt. St. Helens.  We see Mt. St. Helens from our living room windows and front yard.  In this image, it's spouting off a little steam.  Right now, during the month of August, it has almost no snow on it, and so I'm guessing this image was taken in the winter or spring.  It's fun to watch the mountain, which is still an active volcano.  Whenever I see it, whether it's driving up Interstate 5 or flying over in an airplane, it feels as if I'm home.

For next week's Foto Finish, let's go with Funny.

Now I'm ready to see where you live.  Here's Mr. Linky:

Wow Barbara, what an amazing view. How far are you from the Mountain?? Did you live there when it erupted back in the 80's?

No mountains, no hills, no oceans, just plain Home Sweet Home in my post. Thanks for sharing your view!

Nice shot! I wouldn't have thought of that being steam at the top, just a little resting cloud.

Hope you're having fun this weekend on your camping trip. :D

Mountains have become my favorite view since I moved out west. Mount Tamalpais (Mt Tam, for short) is visible from our yard every day and we love it.
