My original plan for Lake Tahoe was to photograph only Emerald Bay, at sunset.
Having got that shot already, I took off around the lake to explore a bit more of the area – most of my previous visits had either been to see friends or go snowboarding on some of the amazing mountains there, so I’d never really taken the time to explore other areas around the lake.
Lake Tahoe is known for its crystal-blue waters and stunning panoramic scenery, but I wanted to get a shot with a pier or jetty in the foreground to add a bit more depth to the frame. The challenge is, from what I discovered that afternoon, almost all of the access to the lake itself is now private property.
Undeterred, I asked my friend Jenny for a bit of guidance – and she came up with a winner! There’s a small state park called “Sugar Pine Point” which is also the home to the Ehrman Mansion. More importantly, however, it has a jetty and a stunning view of the lake.
Getting the shot when the entire view was clear of boats and people as well as keeping the camera still for a full 5 seconds in the wind was quite a challenge, but out of 4 shots taken this one came out just the way I wanted. Calm, clear, crystal waters are just calling out for you to jump “into the blue”.
