Photo Thursday: Mount Shasta from a 747

I am in Germany for business this week but wanted to get a quick “Photo Thursday” out there. This is not an artistically earthshattering photo, but it’s still one of my favorites from 2011. It is a shot of Mt Shasta taken on January 30, 2011, from an uncomfortable economy seat of a United 747. I had been on the plane for about 9 hours (this was the return flight from my last trip to Germany) and was dozing off when the pilot announced that we were approaching Mt Shasta and he would dip the wings so we would get a good view. I’ve been on this flight several times and have never had a pilot do this, so I dug out my camera and captured the view below.
