Mt. Shasta, 14,162 ft. (4,317m) is about an hour's ride south of my house, and with the temperature finally climbing above freezing, and me needing no excuse whatsoever to go riding, I pointed my bike south, and my NEX-6 at whatever looked interesting. We've been under an inversion layer for many days now, and the atmosphere was hazier than I would have preferred. But that didn't matter so much when I got up close to a local artist's work. Nearing the foot of the mountain, I veered off to explore the scenery along dirt roads. A friendly horse came up to pose for the camera. As did my "Iron" horse. All shot with the NEX-6 and the 16-50mm kit lens. And may I just say here that the inventor of heated grips deserves a Nobel prize!
