Interesting Photo of the Day: Meteor Shower Over McCloud Falls

Northern California provides many a photo op, with its lush forests, high mountains, gorgeous rivers and expansive lakes; it’s truly a nature photographer’s playground. In the Cascades, just southeast of Mount Shasta, runs the McCloud River, with a bunch of spring-fed streams and waterfalls. The McCloud Waterfalls are picturesque at any time of day, but capture them on a magical night, like during a meteor shower, and the scene is truly breathtaking:

In this photo captured by Brad Goldpaint, you can really see nature connect with the soft texture of the cascading water against the sharp, meteorite-streaked sky. Anyone who stops to take it all in will no doubt feel at one with awe-inspiring Mother Earth.
