I went up North to Lassen National Park with a side trip to a Lavender Farm, and a fabulous waterfall with good friends.  We were hoping to shoot the Full Moon, and later shoot the Night Sky since we’d be in up in the mountains and away from light pollution. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had a different idea. As the afternoon wore on the clouds got thicker, and darker.

On the bright side… It was Spring up in the high country: the Lupine was in full bloom, and the sunset was gorgeous.

Sunset Lake Helen Lassen National Park, CA. USA

This is Lake Helen…very low, but it’s still gorgeous.  I said they miss named this Lake because what you really can’t see here is the water is a lovely inky blue.

Shortly after this image was made there was lightning to the southeast! We rarely see it here so we chased it. It was fun!

I’ll be catching up with all you did this past week, and sharing more from my week-end in upcoming posts.

To get an early look of what we did visit my Instagram site here My Instagram Site

  1. Cool, a blue lake! sounds like my kind of place. Hope you are having a wonderful cruise!

    • When you get back here you’ll have to visit even if you just go for the week-end like I did you’ll have time to see the wonder and beauty of the park.

      The Cruise! It was fun, and so neat seeing new places, and meeting new people.

  2. Nice colors and clouds!

  3. Pretty sunset; the clouds may have destroyed your future plans but certainly added extra color and interest to this tranquil scene.

    • They did, and the smoke from the Clear Lake fire may have added more intensity to the colors that night.

  4. Beautiful clouds!
