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.

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.
