Photo Assignments From The Editor Of Outdoor Photographer Magazine
Photographer: Javier Acosta
Location: Bonsai Rock, North Lake Tahoe, Nevada
Equipment: Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 17-40mm ƒ/4L USM, Induro tripod, Lee 3-stop soft-edge, graduated neutral-density filter
Situation: I've been to Bonsai Rock an estimated 20 times. On my previous visits, the conditions weren't present—the lake was either too rough or the water level was too high, it was too windy, the skies were clear, etc.—and I knew that having all of the right conditions would be difficult. I attempted this shot once again during Thanksgiving weekend, November 2011. I arrived at Bonsai Rock in an attempt to capture a great sunset. On the fourth visit that week, the conditions finally came together. The lake was the calmest I had ever seen it, and the sky was amazing. I had this great scene all to myself, shot as many frames as I could and ended up with this image.
