Got a call from a great guy and great photographer a couple days ago about hitting up Lake Tahoe and Yosemite and it crushed me to not be able to go. I’ve been working double time at work as the year draws to an end and I had to shoot a senior and family portrait last night that just couldn’t be rescheduled.

Since I couldn’t head out to shoot, I figured I’d drop back into my spring break trip and pull out another shot. Sort of a …virtual… mental photo trip of sorts. Couple computer freezes (stupid macbook pro) later and here we have it. I hope you enjoy. I like the highlights on the dune ridges. Cheers
