'Gates of Telos'

Mount Shasta is by far one of my favorite areas to explore in Northern California as it offers a range of ecosystems to shoot, including nightscape opportunities like this.

There are many stories of Mount Shasta dating back centuries to the native people who lived here, ranging from the spirit chief Skell, who descended from heaven to the mountain’s summit and fought with Spirit of the Below-World who resided at Mount Mazama (aka Crate Lake) by throwing hot rocks and lava, probably reference to past eruptions.

Or the even stranger stories of the mythical city of Telos that is inhabited by an advanced people underneath the mountain who are thought to be descendants of the lost continent of Lemuria. 

I think these stories are why I enjoy this image so much; it has this extraterrestrial and raw ancient feeling of folk lore, while paying tribute to the Milky Way above.
