As the sun rises, Mount Shasta cast a massive shadow on the clouds above.
Anyone who has followed this site for a while knows about my preoccupation with lenticular clouds. These unique clouds are one of Mount Shasta’s great features. However, while they are magnificent, it is not proper to highlight them at the expense of some of the other awesome cloud events that are not lenticular in nature. Indeed, Mount Shasta’s great size has long been known to influence the weather around it and, as if often the case, it makes for some interesting meteorological events. These, couple with the light from the rising and setting sun and the mountains own intrinsic beauty, can make for a truly spectacular spectacle. It is here in this gallery that I hope to highlight these other events.
