Emerald Bay Lake Tahoe

I captured this scene of Emerald Bay looking over Lake Tahoe in late winter. It was a typical winter day with overcast skies. Look down on this astounding bay, ​and you can see why Mark Twain dubbed Lake Tahoe "the fairest picture the whole earth affords." The lake’s west shore takes on a startling and beautiful blue-green, made all the more striking by the perfect dot of tiny Fannett Island seen in this photo.
