This was one of those morning shoots I will never forget. We were at Lake Tahoe and did a hike at Emerald Bay which in itself was a memorable affair. As we were leaving the parking lot, I checked my bearings and it dawned on me that this would be a perfect place for a sunrise shoot. We were leaving the next day for our trip back to San Francisco so I decided to go back the next morning all by my lonesome to catch the sunrise. We were staying at a house on the North shore of Tahoe and Emerald Bay is on the opposite end of the lake. It’s about an hour away so I got up at 3 AM and made my way down. It was a beautiful morning and one of those “I could die right here…” moments.
