Winter Frolic at Lake Tahoe
Last weekend had the wonderful trip to the North shore of Lake Tahoe, at Incline Village. In order to get there from Sacramento, there are a few mountain passes–there were chain requirements as I looked at the forecast–but decided to brave the elements. My new Ford Escape 4WD did great–no chains were needed!
With snowy passes, I hoped a shed I had photographed 6 years ago would still be standing–and it was! You need to know where to look for it, as it is nestled in the trees and a bit off the road. Winter is the easiest time to view it.
Passed these trees on the way to the lake and had to come back for a closer look.
The best thing about storms are when they are coming and going. This image was taken on the highway to Mt. Rose, almost 8,000 feet elevation.
Missed a day of shooting due to a migraine, but did venture outside to a place about a mile up the road from the condo. Actually, the vantage point is the parking lot of the Ski resort, Diamond Peak. Found the creek the day before and knew I wanted to visit near sunset.
This was the best surprise of the day. I turned around and there was an unexpected find…
I had to make sure that my car was hidden behind the branches, cause I knew I didn’t have time to go move it!
One thing I know, I am really enjoying shooting snowy locations and winter is just starting, so I am hopeful to have more treks to the snow:)
