This picture of Eagle Falls at sunrise in winter above Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe, California is sometimes a bit harder to get to than others.
See more Lake Tahoe Area photos on our main web site.
When the snow really starts building up, CalTrans closes the section of Highway 89 that goes along the sides of Emerald Bay. This particular year, there was a very long period of no new snow, so the road was re-opened, allowing me to get up well before sunrise to get this shot.
Tip: When photographing outdoors in cold weather, be careful to keep from getting condensation. If you bring your very cold camera gear inside, and it warms too quickly, you can have drops of water condense out of the air inside the camera or between the glass elements of your lens. These little drops of water can either cause soft images in the lens, or render the camera useless if the moisture gets into the circuits.
