I lived in South Lake Tahoe 1996-2003. My family still lives there and I am so blessed to return home often to enjoy nature, family and a familiar vibe that is apart of my soul. I put on a pair of fishing waders and wondered a half mile out into the lake during a crisp thanksgiving twilight. Wait deep in fridged, clear water I approached this couple on their romantic paddle. I was able to not only capture a fun over/under landscape, but was able to document an authentic moment of magic between two lovers in this majestic scape. I think we each can see a bit of our selves if we project our imagination into the powerful photo. The shot of Emerald Bay is one of my favorite night landscapes to date!
