Lake Tahoe

12 06 2010

I’m back from my 6 week trip around America . Have to say its a pretty amazing place and so much variety with different landscapes to photograph .

Had a great time over there , really is an amzing place to photograph and also eat and shop so much variety with every thing compared to Perth .

Came back with around 350 gigs of RAW images from the trip . Will defiantly be planning on going back to some of these locations in the near future .

One of the places I visited was Lake Tahoe , this would be one of my favorite towns and locations during the trip . It was really tranquil and landscape was amazing . Also have to say that you really notice the thinner air up there when your climbing back up hills with your back pack and tripod .

This was an Sunrise shot of Over looking the Lake , It was really cold this morning and had to work between light showers of snow that morning .

Will have a lot more images coming over the next weeks .

very nice Kirk. great composition and colours. really matched Neal’s stuff from here. 🙂 love the snow capped peaks in the background too.
not sure if it’s my monitor but there’s something about the black’s i’m not sure about- they’re real, real contrasty. not sure how to explain what I mean but it doesn’t stop it being a fantastic shot though!

I was stunned as well by the landscape and the variety in landscapes, it is such a beautiful country. There is so much to shoot, enough for the next 100s of visits. I never made it to Lake Tahoe but it is on my list hehe, as it looks awesome and you shot a very nice pano. Look forward to seeing more of your work from the US
