Morning Reflections
Photo By Edward Mendes

  • Title: Morning Reflections
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Lake Tahoe
  • Nearest Town: Tahoe City
  • Brief Directions: Emerald Bay State Park is on State Route 89 near the southwest shore of the lake.
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine fresh water lake in the United States and is known for having the cleanest water as well. The lake is filled with numerous sweeping views but none more beautiful then Emerald Bay, with it's tree lined shores and picturesque island in it's center. I've driven around the lake many times and knew exactly where I wanted to setup. I arrived well before sunrise and took my time setting up and composing the image, all the while watching the light and color both in the sky and reflecting off the still water. I knew I wanted to capture as much color reflecting off the water as possible so I would be making the exposure just prior to sunrise while the most color was in the sky and being picked up by in the water. Because of this no light would be coming over the crest of the mountains so the tress around the lake would be silhouetted, acting as a frame to highlight the color in the sky and water.

    Beautiful Image! Astro/Night photography seems to be quite a challenge, and you captured a remarkable landmark with it! Hoping to give this a try on next photo trip to the Hawaiian Islands. Will...

    "Absolutely in the right place at the right time". So very rare to see a double rainbow let alone have your camera with perfect glowing conditions.. Great capture
