Incredible lenticular stacks form near Mount Shasta.
Once again, Mount Shasta was up to its tricks, disrupting changing weather systems and causing massive lenticular displays to form overhead. As the autumn and winter have unfolded, what started off as a slow lenticular season has suddenly turned in a really remarkable series of lenticular displays. Those of February 9th will certainly rate among the more exciting and elaborate collection of clouds I have seen around Mount Shasta. The form of the clouds was in constant flux but for much of the day, the disks grew in multiple stacks just south of the mountain. If there was anything to complain about in the midst of such a singular and staggering display it was that the lenticulars cast their shadow on Mount Shasta, rendering the mountain dark amidst harsh, glaring light. Nonetheless, the spectacular nature of the clouds demanded I stop numerous times during the day to capture their awesome nature.
I have two lengthy posts in the works, so I will keep this one short and put up the pictures. I think they speak for themselves.
