Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems...

- Rainer Maria Rilke.

This time when we visited Mt Shasta, it was as a destination that as a pass through point like the last two times. So I did my usual research and came up with two lake locations from where I could shoot the mountain reflections. One was the heart lake location which required a pretty serious hike and the other was the more popular location near Lake Siskiyou.


I have used the TPE app and calculated that sunrise would be my best chance to get some golden light on the mountain and hoped that thick cloud cover would clear and reveal the mountain. As we got close to the lake I realized that the lake itself had a thick layer of fog above it and I had no chance of a decent shot. But the eternal optimist in me still dragged most of my stuff to the lake shore and waited for the sun to rise and clear some of the clouds and fog.


Thankfully my persistence paid off and some of the fog and clouds cleared to let some light in, albeit for a brief period. Fortunately I had set everything up so all I had to do was click away. Hope you all like it and I get to come back here after the storm has passed.
