The pre-dawn hour before sunrise at Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe can be a magical place. On this cold morning, the sky reflected beautifully in the bay highlighting tiny Fannette Island. The peace I felt at this moment will always be with me. I hope you like it too.

We reached here for a sunrise shot so the weather was pretty chilly and we realized that to get the best shot we need to actually cross the stream as the clearing between the two falls provided the best view. It was a bit scary to wade through the ice cold stream wearing sandals but it was fun and we reached the clearing and from the beginning I wanted to include the tree to the left in the frame and use a more normal focal length than the usual Wide Angle, so I used Nikkor 18-35 in portrait mode at 35mm and combined 3 shots to get the view.
