MOUNT SHASTA


I took this shot of Mount Shasta from a rest area stop we made on our way home from Washington. We were getting close to Redding, California.
Check out Mr Mapper's post for a great picture of the mountain and all the facts about it.
As always click on the picture to enlarge it.

c'est sublime et cela laisse rêveur.
It is sublime, and this leaves dreamer.

John Roberts said...

Beautiful. The trees in the foreground give a sense of scale. This makes our mountains here in the east look tiny.

That looks almost like the cone of a volcano with the hole in the middle? Not sure that it is but that was my first impression of this beautiful mountain.

p2f1 = my going green slogan. Means: Pee twice and flush once to save half of the water otherwise flushed away.

Spectacular view and photo!
And your photo about the spider web is so brilliant, that I can not understand it, how you did it or should I say, how this spider made it :)
I think, you both are brilliant!

Hi there... I'm back from Florida, and it's COOOOOLLLLDDD here, I want to go back to the beach and the palm trees. Thanks for sticking with my blog while I didn't have internet access, I should be back to normal now. Florida pics being posted in a day or two.
Meanwhile I was browsing all your pics that I missed while I was away... wonderful shots as usual. I love the geese, and the colour of the lichen, and the rust. You can always be trusted to produce some lovely pictures!

Oh... almost forgot... I hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving with your family.

Salty said...

Awesome! I agree with John, including the trees as a foreground element provides scale to the enormity of the mountain.

Great shot!

Such a lovely place, but it looks very cold. It's a scene one can stare at for a long time.

Beautiful shot! I haven't passed by there for years now, but remember it's stunning beauty well... You've done a good job capturing it!

Lovely mountain photo, and the name of the mountain is nice, too.

I got my problem fixed, turned out to be a known issue with a fix posted at blogspot.com.

We are so lucky living along the west coast with all those volcanos to look at (as long as they dont blow like Mt StHelens did back in 1981. From Vancouver, BC we can see Mt. Baker in Washington State(when the weather allows).
Some of our mountain highways can be tricky in winter, so we always try to hit the high passes at midday when they are cleaned up and gritted.

I like mountains so much! from our place (in RO) sometimes we can see the Bucegi mountains, especially in a clear day. great shot!

Lucy said...

That's beautiful! I love Mt Shasta!

Paula said...

Incredible! The atmosphere is so clear. It's not often I get such a clear shot of Mt Ranier this time of year. Didn't know you were in WA!! How close were you to Seattle?

Kate said...

It's a beauty; I'd love to ski there.

Ruth said...

What a grand photo. Sue, I did a solo campout when I was 20, near Ashland, Oregon, and when I got up in the morning, I made coffee over an open fire and watched Mt. Shasta. Such a fond memory. Thanks for the reminder. :)
