The Thinning Forest

The combination of falling leaves and falling trees was allowing the horizon to peek through the remaining forest on the west shore of Jim Day Rapids. There were still a few lily pads hanging on. One bull frog watched me the entire time I painted. It was mainly sunny again! The cloud bases had shot through the cloud tops since the cold air mass was quite dry. This just means that the lifted condensation level for the mixed air mass was higher that the top of the morning layer of cloud. This is a typical progression for a cold air mass.
