I had wanted to capture a beautiful winter scene of Zephyr Cove for quite some time. Unfortunately, there are boats moored in the main part of the cove all year long. I scouted this location at the north end of Zephyr Cove several days earlier, and returned early morning on this picture perfect day. The snow covered boulders were a beautiful middle-ground that also concealed a boat I didn’t want in the scene. The snow covered Sierras are the perfect background. Lake Tahoe is beautiful all year round. A blanket of snow, at the beach, adds that little something extra.
