I recognized the place instantly because I lived at Lake Tahoe for 6+ years. I have seen Emerald Bay from this angle during all seasons of the year...even in the winter when I had to hike through 4 feet of snow to reach it. There is one thing that makes this picture stand out: The sepia toned sky and the effect the lighting has on the mood of the picture. In all my years at Tahoe I never saw the sky this color but...here it is. Yes, there is indeed something very special about Lake Tahoe.

Behind The Lens

Location
Emerald Bay State Park, Lake Tahoe, California.
Time
I shot this photograph around 8:30AM
Lighting
It was cloudy and overcast.
Equipment
My camera is a Canon 5D Mark II 24-70mm 2.8 lens. I was using a polarizing filter and an ND grad filter. My tripod was a GIOTTOS Silk Road YTL 9253. and a Manfrotto MH804-3WUS.
Inspiration
When the clouds are this good I always stop a 5 or 6 spots in Emerald Bay.
Editing
I do as little as possible in Photoshop or Lightroom.
In my camera bag
My camera a Canon 24-70mm 2.8 Lens, Canon 70-200mm 2.8 Lens, Canon 100mm Mac-row 2.8 Lens, and Canon 85mm 1.8 Lens. I also have my assorted "LEE FILTERS" that I love.
Feedback
The only advice that I have is go out and SHOOT, SHOOT, & SHOOT!!!!!! one thing that I like to do is to study other photographers work that I like. You should look at a photograph and dissect it the lighting, the composition, and the subject. Go over every part of a good photo. The more you study all good photographs and photographers you are teaching your self to know what is a good photograph. Read, study photography, lighting, composition, and subject.
