Behind The Lens

Location
I had just driven completely around Lake Tahoe, NV side. When I had started out, it was snowing on the other side. But by the time I reached this sunset spot, the snow had melted and the snow clouds were breaking up.
Time
Early evening at Lake Tahoe's Sand Harbor Park
Lighting
I wanted to use a slow shutter speed to get the water to look silky and mysterious, but also wanted the breaking clouds ablaze in recently departed sun. The problem was the sky was too bright even with graduated filters to get the water to look the way I wanted. By photographing the sky detail first and then waiting over a hour to get low enough light for the slow shutter speed exposures, I was able to fuse these two time differences together to reveal the dynamic Tahoe harbor scene. I knew that most of the shots of this challenging lit vista were going to be too over exposed, while others way under. By covering a range of techniques, I knew that a few would turn out just right - giving me one of my favorite shots of Lake Tahoe.
Equipment
Sony A850, Sony 24-105mm lens, Benro Tripod, Cokin filters (ND & Grad), Remote shutter release.
Inspiration
Just about any photographs of Lake Tahoe - simply beautiful photo opportunities!
Editing
Adobe PS hand blended two timeframe still time lapse covering about an hour. No computer HDR.
In my camera bag
Sony A850, Sony A77, Sony A7R, Sony Lenses, Benro tripod, Cokin filters, Cine packback, EZ Leveler, Big Stopper, CP polarizers, Lightning Trigger, Remote shutter release, cell phone, treats, warm hats- beanies, extra batteries
Feedback
Don't be afraid to shoot in times of the day where everyone else goes home. Low light situations are a most revealing photographic world to be discovered!
