One of the locations in Northern California I like to go for sunset is Lake Siskiyou, where a great reflection of Mount Shasta is visible on calm evenings. This was not one of those calm times. So I framed the shot having part of the surface of the lake visible to catch the light, but the primary subject would be Mount Shasta. The clouds to the west blocked some of the sun's rays, casting dappled light on Mount Shasta and its foothills. I like the way nature always challenges me to be creative.

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.

Phantom Ship Island: The peak of a ridge in Crater Lake, this small island is around 300 feet long with a maximum width of 200. The ridge of spires stands 163 feet above the lake surface creating a ship-like appearance, with the spires being the tall masts of this mighty vessel. With a closeup view, we see the island supports some trees: 7 of the species found in the park grow together .... they aren't found together in the rest of the park ... making this little island a tree sanctuary.
