Mt. Shasta Lenticular Clouds at Night


Captured August 30th from Little Mount Hoffman.  The night of August 29th-30th eventually clouded over.  But before it did, we were treated to some of Mount Shasta’s localized weather and lenticular clouds. Sony α7s ii and 35mm f/1.8 Zeiss. 10 seconds at ISO1000.

The site is actually very dark, but we’re seeing a fair amount of light pollution coming from the town of Mount Shasta, which is reflecting some light off the clouds in this image.  The Sony’s amazing light sensitivity also easily picks up any light.  The glaciers seen in this image are illuminated by starlight!
