I had lived in Herlong, California for nine years of my life.. Not once did I make the trip to Mount Lassen. I have no idea why, it just never registered on my “to do” list. When I finally made the trip up there I couldn’t believe what I saw. Immense landscape and amazing mountains and colors. I fell in love with the place. Today I am looking forward to taking a hike through there in the near future and sleeping under these amazing stars.
I took this picture as we were leaving the national park, National geographic was there as well taking photos and having a public star gazing tour. It was pretty amazing to have just stumbled upon all this.
This photo was taken with the Sony A7R and sony E 10-18mm lens. Long exposure 30seconds and iso 4000.
