Hello my TL friends,
I went through my archive - archive of my pictures taken with my analog camera and I found some from my first great trip to USA.
Lake Tahoe is wonderful and the most beautiful place I´ve ever seen. The lake is known for the clarity of its water and the panorama of surrounding mountains on all sides.
And the Emerald Bay is Lake Tahoe's most photographed natural wonder!

From wikipedia:
The Emerald Bay State park - 593-acre park is home to Eagle Falls and Vikingsholm, a 38-room mansion that is one of the finest examples of Scandinavian architecture in the western hemisphere. The park contains the only island in Lake Tahoe, Fannette Island. During harsh winters, the bay freezes over. The bay is about 1.7 miles in length, and about two-thirds of a mile wide at its widest point.
And underwater is the first california´s shipwreck park - The Emerald Bay Historic Barges. Located in 10 to 30 feet of clear water in Emerald Bay, the site consists of two large wooden barges constructed of massive Ponderosa pine timbers. They are typical of the cordwood barges constructed in the early 1900s for use in carrying general cargo on the lake.

The picture was:

+10 contrast

Have a nice day!

Ahoj Jitko,
máš opravdu plodnej archiv:-) Tahle fotka je moc fajn. Prima kompozice, barvy, rámeček,... Připomíná mi obrázky z kalendářů:-)
To neuvěřitelně modrý jezero mě začalo víc zajímat až když jsem si přečetla, že je potapěčskou lokalitou...takhle čistá voda je holt něco jinýho než Orlická přehrada...
Koukám, že se Ti povedlo o dost líp než mě upravit to, že je fotka skenovaná. Skládám poklonu.
Úspěšnej tejden přeju :-)

blue is so intense.. i think.. incredible.. my compliments..
