I got these amazing pictures of mount saint hellen smoke rings. I thought i would share it with everyone. The first one is my favorite, it seems that a giant being is smoking a HUGE pipe.

The air is pushed through the top hole of the mountain, and the tempreture on that altitude is JUST RIGHT that it would form particles in the air that looks like a little circle cloud over the mountain top.

This is probably the poorest explanation of what a smoke ring is within that context, but I TRIED people. Please enjoy.

Holy crap! That is just incredible and wonderful and magnificent. Thank you for sharing.

those are called lenticular clouds… it indicates an unstable airmass around the mountain top. If you pilot a cessna 172 into that, expect flying inverted

Nice photos, but the one on the bottom is of Mt. Fuji
