Side Lit Pine Trees Painted Dunes
Side Lit Pine Trees in the Painted Dunes.
The trail head starts at the Butte Lake parking area. after about 1.2 miles you arrive at the base of Cinder Cone, I went past the trail up to the top of the cone and worked my way to the Painted Dunes which is around the base of the cone.
Sun beams worked through the clouds spot lighting different areas to create interest and contrast. I watched the light play off of the landscape, waiting for the right moment to click the shutter. Side lit Pine Trees grow out of some random volcanic rock fragments in the Painted Dunes in Lassen Volcanic National Park.
