Veiled Curtains

August 27, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Mossbrae falls is a hidden gem around Mount Shasta region of Northern California. It is so amazing to see this place in person. It feels like a  huge veil of water curtain over green moss falling in Sacramento river. If you visit this place in a summer afternoon, is is absolutely stunning to see amazing sunlight giving silvery touch to waterfall and lighting up green moss behind it.

How to go there:  Accessibility to this place is another challenge as it is located in a very secluded place. You will have to travel to town of Dunsmuir in Northern California. You have to come to intersection of Scarlet way and Dunsmuir ave, park your car in a legal parking somewhere and enter thru a arch (Shasta retreat  41.228384, -122.275889) to Scarlet way and keep walking towards railroad (there are signs which will say no trespassing), crossing the river via over bridge (41.230357, -122.279238). Turn right and keep walking next to railroad about 1.5 miles and you will hear the waterfall sound (41.241572, -122.266795).  

Technical: I took 3 shots using Nikon D800e and Nikkor 14-24, @ f/11, ISO 50, 24 mm in raw format, initial import and processing in Capture One, created HDR using Photomatix, final touches in Photoshop CS6 and Nik software.
