After sunset at Northern California's Castle Lake, I was driving down the road ... and Mount Shasta came into view, with a lush green carpet of manzanita in the foreground. So I captured this image: it was at dusk, with the haze and clouds lighting up with warm tones from the setting sun. I mentioned the drive to and from Castle Lake in my blog "Beautiful Castle Lake."

The road to Northern California's Castle Lake has a lot of trees and curves which create framed views of the hills and mountains of the area. My favorite view is the one of Mount Shasta framed between the trees. In this photo the late afternoon sun is shining on this beautiful volcanic peak.

In reading reviews about Northern California's Castle Lake, one word came up in almost every one: "beautiful". I agree wholeheartily with that description, and that's why I titled this photo and the related blog "Beautiful Castle Lake." This small lake is in the Trinity Mountains located in Siskiyou County California. Castle Lake is a tarn (lake) formed by glacial activity some 10,000 years ago during the Pleistocene Era. Today it is a jewel which attracts those who are looking for a restful and peaceful spot. It's a place I love to go to ... and capture some of its beauty in my photography.
