Lake Shasta Bridge Remains

Lake Shasta Bridge Remains

Only about three times in the past 20 years has Shasta Lake been low enough to reveal secrets of the past, like this bridge. To get to this vantage point, we had to brave a kayak trip across a muddy, muddy mess of a closed boat launch. The dramatic clouds and crazy smooth water were developed by a very long exposure, granted by a LEE Big Stopper 10 stop ND filter, and a few graduated filters... and an amazing, totally incredible and rare late summer rain clouds and northern california afternoon light. I've geotagged the photo, if you're thinking of planning your next adventure. Also, there is a 1,000 foot concrete train tunnel next to the bridge which is fun to explore by kayak. How did the hammock get in the photo? Lots of careful positioning with two kayaks, multiple camera exposures, and a whole lot of luck. Thanks Scot for being such a patient outdoor model!

The clouds over Mount Shasta are always shifting and at times an amazing view turns into nothing special before you even have time to get your camera out of your bag. This time, I got it. The sky participated, and showcased a nice perspective of the mountain.
