Description

Heading home, up I-5 in northern California, I just had to stop and make an image of the 6000-feet granite spires in the Castle Crags Wilderness. I had passed by this area numerous times. Of course one cannot simply stop alongside a busy freeway to make a photograph so it was necessary to find an appropriate viewpoint. It took some time off-road driving, hiking and clambering to find this vista. I was ultimately blessed when, late in the afternoon when I made this shot, clouds developed in the previously-bald sky.
