We hiked through Panther Meadows on our way to the little summit of Gray Butte at Mt. Shasta. In person, it was interestingly beautiful on account of these strange little pines. In digital, it is rather more strangely beautiful in terms of the color. This was the first time I actually found myself in the mountains with a polarizing filter on the camera. It seems to have done things to the color that I was not expecting and can’t seem to control well. This was especially so in the meadow here, for some reason. Nonetheless, I found these shots interesting.
