Our first destination on a recent west coast adventure was to Lake Tahoe. We explored the entire circumference of the lake over 2 days, thanks to our wonderful host and tour guide Cindy (a friend who has lived there for 12+ years). Lake Tahoe was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!! (A photographer's dreamland!) We decided it was the perfect combination of beautiful water, mountains & trees. I have an extensive list of places I'd like to see, so rarely does a destination I do visit make my 'return visit' list. Lake Tahoe is an exception. I would love to see and photograph this area in all seasons.
The first photos I'm sharing is the view we enjoyed every morning and evening.
And then we actually get down to the lake. We are still amazed at the clarity of the water. This first photograph is of the Truckee River, the only outflow source from Lake Tahoe.
The clarify of the water in the lake was amazing as well.
The water color was amazing. From emerald green to deep blues, and all hues in between those 2 colors. Reminded me of an inland caribbean location! (And I couldn't help myself in grabbing some abstract water photos to add to that collection!)
Combine the beautiful water, with mountains full of evergreen trees surrounding the lake and you have my definition of paradise!
And I can't pass up a great window shot. What I loved about this one was the lake reflection of course, but also catching the window along the other wall in here as well - another photo to add to the "Windows" collection!
Some photographs taken from the water.
And a bonus for me was capturing these photographs of a momma and baby bear!
All photographs were taken with a Canon 6D with Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8L USM.
