Taken at Sand Harbor State Park, Lake Tahoe, Nevada on January 15th, 2011

Lake Tahoe has many beautiful places along its shores, but for me Sand Harbor is at the top of the list. The way the white granite boulders merge with the crystal clear, turquoise water is simply incredible. On this night I was shooting a sunset that I thought was going to be a dud. But as I packed up my gear, the clouds to the north lit up with gorgeous pink and purple hues and I raced to get my camera out to take this shot. With the beauty of the scene, and a complete lack of any wind, it seemed as though Tahoe and I were both left breathless.
