Gina Green of Phurreal Photography took this photograph of Mt. Shasta the evening of Oct. 12, 2008 from just off Hwy 97 on Cypress Ave.

“After a full day of watching and photographing the mountain, waiting for just the perfect shot, Surprise!,” Green wrote in an e-mail to the newspaper. “As we drove back to Weed in the dark, the full moon was centered above the mountain with its highlighted lenticular cloud formation. The light from the moon was so bright, it lit up the mountain as if it were day time. Another beautiful moment of our special mountain."

Green’s photos are available in town for sale at Mount Shasta Art Gallery, Crystal Wings, and Golden Bough Books.
