Storm a Brewing- Sand Harbor, Nevada

View On Black

 

It had been snowing all along the west side of Lake Tahoe, so we decide to go north to test our luck. We rounded the north shore and into Nevada, and the storm clouds were everywhere. At that time we payed the $4 to park at Sand Harbor and checkout out all the spots.

 

We settled on the North-West facing cove that everyone photographs. This area has SO many options for photos. Which is great for numerous reasons. First,you do not have to battle royale over compositions while the light is good (Jim and I seem to always have to roshambo for comps). Second, your photo friends do not have to be in your photo.

 

We both strolled out with wading boots and began to play. Wading boots/waders are a must for this site, especially if you do not want to fall in.

 

You will see numerous sand harbor photos littering my photo stream over the next few weeks, can't help it... that afternoon was that good. All are long exposures, done in mid day.
