South Tahoe Snags

On the California side of South Shore Lake Tahoe there is an area where something had killed a large grove of phone.  The bleached wood and bright snow make for a great contrast with the clear high altitude skis of Lake Tahoe.

Miller Lake

This is a small lake that sits off of the Rubicon Trail west of Lake Tahoe.  I love all the small alpine lakes that are throughout the Sierra.  It is nice that there is always enough of them so you can find some piece and quite by one.

Avalanche Lake

The mountains that ring the south end of Avalanche Lake obviously suffer from the event for which this lake was named for.  The remains of hundreds of trees that were victims of those avalanches cover the north end of the lake.  But in early winter the lake is a peaceful place to watch to weather pass over the ridge line.  This lake is in the west side of Glacier National Park in Montana.

Edge of the Storm

This winter image of Lake Tahoe was taken from the East Shore, between Sand Harbor and Incline Village.  It was one of those spectacular mornings where the lake was like glass, yet a storm was heading onto the lake from the west shore.  This panoramic was created by taking eight individual shots and stitching them together.

East Shore Lake Tahoe

The East Shore of Lake Tahoe has a very dramatic look with its rocky shore line.  Much of the East Shore is contained in the Nevada State Park and as a result as easy access to many of the beautiful parts.  This photo was taken from a trail that follows the East Shore north of Sand Harbor.

Stone Mother

Stone Mother is a rock formation on the east side of Pyramid Lake.  The rock formation was named by the Paiute Indians that have live in this area.  The Mother sits with her basket looking out over the lake.

Morning at Emerald Bay

Emerald Bay is probably one of the most photographed places at Lake Tahoe.  The accessible vantage point and amazing view make for this color portrait of this amazing place.
