This image was shot from Lake Tahoe’s eastern shore during a late Autumn sunset. During the summer, this secluded cove is a favorite destination for nude sun bathers. Later in the year however, it is much too cold for the scantily clad to bare their skin. This also means you can show up and watch the sunset without perhaps even seeing another soul. Simply serene. This beach is one of my personal favorites from around the popular alpine lake - one of Tahoe’s most beautiful gems. The small beach, aptly named Secret Cove, is littered with medium sized boulders and unbelievable leopard like sand patterns in the shallows. A long exposure of 47 seconds was utilized in this scene to smooth the water, colors and clouds while I stood in the chilly water watching the scene progress.
