When i was planning my 2 day trip to Lake Tahoe from San Francisco, i didn't think expect that i will go around Lake Tahoe as well as capture some of the beautiful vista in the limited time i was there. This place I remember so clear like yesterday as i was driving by Crystal Bay in the norther Lake Tahoe area, i pulled into a boat loading dock which had an entry fee of 5$. I told the park attendant that i m just going to take a few pictures and it won't be more than 10 minutes. He kindly granted me 5 minutes. I ran to the dock where the boats gets unloaded and took a few shots with my camera mounted on a tripod with a ND filter. The sun was too bright during the day and the ND filter (10 stop) did help a ton. I clicked a few shots and was on my way when the guy waved at me for honoring the 5 minute window he gave me.
