“Surely the fairest picture the whole world affords” said Mark Twain of Lake Tahoe, and when free of the crowds you can see just why. This 360 view looks out above Emerald Bay, over towards Eagle Falls (waterfall) and Fannette Island. We had sat out on the rocks, having a beer or two the night before, after shooting the location at dusk. This was around summer solstice, so morning came around fast. To capture the dawn I headed out early, rewarded by watching the night fall away and the sun start to sweep across the surface of the lake, bathing each tree in rosy morning light.
