As the Stirling Ranges rise very abruptly from the surrounding plains, they generate magnificent cloud formations around their peaks. While spending time on a summit, you can actually see clouds form in front of your eyes as the winds blow warm air which hits the mountains and rises very quickly. It is quite an experience and one I never get tired of seeing.
This was one of my more enjoyable times on Bluff Knoll. A peak I have climbed a good 60 times, with plenty more to come i hope. On this day I headed up with a couple of mates. When we reached the summit there was not a cloud to be seen. Then as it does many times, Bluff Knoll turned on a show for us. The clouds blew in around mid level, and spilled over the Eastern Ranges. They then continued to rise and enveloped us. I have been lucky to have experienced all of this before, but never had all of this on the same day.
Here is one of the shots I got on that day
