Emerald Bay is a sunrise location for me when the air is still and the water is mirror smooth. Beautiful reflections are guaranteed. The best images are created when there are clouds in the sky and the sun just peeks through and paints them from a spectacular palette but often the sun is blocked by the clouds and you get nothing. There is always hope and anxiety on a morning like this. This image was captured long before the sun was up with a blue filter.
Cloudy sunrises fill me with hope and anticipation but you never know.
Emerald Bay is a Lake Tahoe icon and one of the most photographed spots in the nation.
