"The Vortex Spiral Over Mt. Shasta"
I love watching the clouds hang around or move across the sky outside my living room window. Lots of different kinds from the big fluffy whites, some that just hang around the top of The Mountain, really weird ones like the Lenticulars. This Vortex Spiral is one of the strangest clouds I've ever seen over Mt. Shasta. I've only seen it once. I had the picture pretty well painted with a blue sky, and the day before I went to Vegas and Santa Barbara for Brasilian Carnaval it appeared in the morning. I added it to my painting when I got home.
"A vortex is a mass of energy that moves in a rotary or whirling motion, causing a depression or vacuum at the center.... These powerful eddies of pure Earth power manifest as spiral-like coagulations of energy that are either electric, magnetic, or electromagnetic qualities of life force."
Page Bryant, Terravision: A Traveler's Guide to the Living Planet Earth
