Emerald Bay is just amazing... Lake Tahoe and it's Emerald Bay are supposedly one of the most photographed locations on earth... having lived in South Lake Tahoe for several years, I've never seen anything close to your version... Great interpretation of the immediate landscape and it's capture... Thanks for sharing... (which lens and camera did you use?)
