Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Bonsai Sunset” by Mike Darter. Location: Bonsai Rock, Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

“I was in Reno for a couple days, so I decided to try to capture one scenic that had been on my list for a long time,” said Darter. “Bonsai Rock sits on the east side of the lake, just south of Tahoe Village. The first evening the water was really rough, and there wasn’t a lot of a sunset, so I decided to return the next day and try again. The morning was the same, with a little bit of snow. That evening I returned to find the waters very still and got this shot.”
