Mount Shasta - I remember the first time I saw this mountain. It was early summer and it was still covered in snow and you could see it for miles. We were headed to northern California, us coming out of the desert heat, it was visually impressive.
- Mount Shasta, a 14,179-foot (4,322 m) stratovolcano, is the second-highest peak in the Cascade Range and the fifth highest peak in California.

LIGHTNING OVER THE GOLD COAST
Photo and comment by Pawel Papis:
This was taken just couple weeks ago (21/10/12) in Gold Coast, Australia. I was reading some weather updates on the Internet that evening and noticed that big storm was coming from the West. I had to move quickly as I had to drive to this location approx. 15 min. I was hoping to capture something special that evening and finally after 2 years of trying I managed to take photo of the lightning with a decent composition. Yayyy !!! Technical: This is one exposure f8, 5sec. 400 ISO (no image blending) and pretty much straight out of camera with minor adjustments in lightroom.
