Orange/pink cirrus clouds reflect in the calm waters of Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe, on an autumn evening. I live relatively close to Lake Tahoe, and had intended to get a photo like this for quite some time. On this particular afternoon, the sky looked promising. I check the satellite imagery, and it, too, looked promising. I decided to go to this spot and check it out--and I wasn't disappointed! The sky lit up just as I hoped it would, and the display lasted for a few pastel moments.
