Highway 50 towards Lake Tahoe, then 89 towards North Lake Tahoe. There are many piers along the lake. I stopped at one with no gate.
I enjoy light painting and making orbs, especially broken orbs, which is challenging. It took many attempts to get one that I liked.
This is the Lake Tahoe public pier near North Lake Tahoe. This was an experiment in light painting and gathering short star trails. This is one image where I used my cable release to record the image while I spun a light. This was shot at F11, ISO 200, for 276 seconds.
