On the California Nevada border lies Lake Tahoe, one of the largest alpine lakes in the United States, and in my opinion, by far the most beautiful. The color of the lake waters are an astounding deep blue with great clarity. The lake Tahoe shoreline is varied, from residential neighborhoods of the west and north shores, to the smooth white granite boulders and caves that line the eastern shore where this image was captured.
I found this composition while out kayaking, and returned the next dawn to capture this image. The conditions were perfect for early June, nice weather with a recent deep snow pack up in the higher elevations of the Desolation Wilderness Area surrounding this amazing place.
