I missed a week of posts because I was out backpacking with friends. It’s was great to get outside and unplug from the world around us. On this particular morning I was up early and wandering around our campsite and was able to capture these plays on light and color.
Taken last weekend using my fisheye lens, Bonsai Rock in Lake Tahoe. I’ve seen many photos of Bonsai Rock, usually the best time is late afternoon and around sunset. For this photo I went out early and scrambled down the hillside to the shore and waited for the sun to crest the mountain side. I had the whole shoreline and beach to myself. Recent rains has raised the lake water levels again. I love the clarity of this lake, the blue tones and the rocks under water.
One of the highest peaks in the Tahoe Basin is Freel Peak. At 10,886, the last mile to the summit can be challenging but the views along the trail are spectacular!
Recent weather has me cooped up inside and a chance to revisit some photos from the past months. This was taken in late September at Alpine Lake in California. The rain was coming in and I snapped a few shots before putting the camera away for protection. As you can see from the water lines on the boulder, it’s much needed.
