As Summer begins I watch the weather closely and know that Emerald Bay will offer up some amazing light and reflections. It is also a way for me to get out and do the work I love when I don’t have the time to do a big trip. Well, this morning didn’t disappoint. I was amazed that I was there alone on such a spectacular morning. The clouds lit up beautifully and the bay was a perfect mirror. The panoramic format was something I had neglected at Emerald Bay as well, so this was a spectacular start to my day. I also shot this same image with my 4×5 inch film camera. Wow!
