Bonsai Rock

    Newer Older

    A very famous & over photographed place at Lake Tahoe. It's a "hidden gem" as this place is not on the map! Thanks to Flickr & Google map, it's not that hard to locate this place. I had the exact GPS coordinates in the EXIF data if you need. It's about a mile south of Sand Harbor. What you do is you basically just park the car on the side of the highway, walk towards the cliff, and found a pathway to hike down the steep hill until you see the water & this rock. To me, hiking down the steep hill isn't that bad, but climbing back up the hill after the sunset at dark is a totally different story!

      That is stunning Gary. The foreground focus is so eye-catching and what a great background to compliment it.

      This is such a quality capture, Gary. I really like the light and color throughout the entire image. I missed you by just over a week, as I led a small workshop group here. It was great fun; however the lake was like a crazy ocean tide!
