Emerald Bay BW

Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe is so picturesque.  It's a unique area of the lake because it has a small island called "Fannette Island" right in the middle of it.  And if you look closely, there's some sort of small structure on the island.  Apparently it's the remains of the "Tea House", part of Mrs. Lora Josephine Knight's "Vikingsholm", a sort of mansion-castle build on the bay below and out of the shot here.

As far as the shot goes, I opted for the black and white look.  Everything was so green and blue which is great for sightseeing, but for midday photography, I thought a monochrome version would be a little more interesting.  You may not, so roll over the image with your mouse and you will see the original color version before straightening and post-processing.

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.  As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.
