Lake Tahoe Waves

Something a little different from me...

Last Tuesday was amazing, I went for a 10 mile hike, then to Tahoe to go take pictures. I Had a map and couldn't decide where I wanted to go, So I kinda moved my finger up and down a map of the East side of Lake Tahoe and decided on Chimney Beach. By the time that I got there I was exhausted from the hike and still had about a mile hike down to the beach. I pretty much limped the whole way to the Beach.

The trail ran along Marlette Creek, and when I finally emerged out of the river my jaw dropped. I had never seen a place this amazing. The trees, the granite, the river, the lake, the sand. I just couldn't believe that a place like this existed. Just an amazing place.

When I got here I ran like a kid in a candy from one place to another trying to find the perfect composition for when the light started changing.

For this shot I had tried to do a panoramic, but, that didnt work as well as I had hoped. This shot was one of the segments from that pano. I was going to do color, but that was kinda bland so I did BW. It was the first one in a while, and I thought it looked good.

Let me know what you think.
