Bonsai Rock - Lake Tahoe, Nevada

For many years, I resisted ever getting a vacation unless it concentrated on nothing but SCUBA diving. How factors have adjusted.

Above the Thanksgiving holiday getaway, Kendra and I made a decision on a prolonged weekend up all over Lake Tahoe. The affordable lodging and straightforward entry to numerous unique shooting destinations helped participate in a section in our decision. Becoming near to casinos and a multitude of Safeways, Subways, and Starbucks was an surprising surprise.

For our to start with working day, we obtained up at 6am to complete packing and get to Tahoe by lunch time, consequently letting ourselves loads of time to scout out and locate Bonsai Rock. It appeared like a great position to start out as the climate forecast known as for worsening wind and probable snow showers as the weekend progressed. Stephen Oachs had mentioned something about reflections and wind, and yeah they do not mix.

Kendra is the GPS queen, and she loaded up a bunch of places for us to examine out. As we drove all over the lake, she would randomly explain to me how speedy I was driving by searching at her GPS. As we passed Sand Harbor, I realized Bonsai Rock was near and told Kendra to look out the window for it as it is down a comparatively steep incline from the freeway.

“But the GPS states we have 4 more miles”, she said. “No”, I replied,”it’s only about 50 percent a mile or so from Sand Harbor”. At that instant, I listen to “there it is!” and the GPS chimes in that we had reached our place. Funny how 4 miles can be coated in 30 seconds. Great task GPS.

So this is my reflections shot, you won’t see lots of more reflections from me out of this excursion. The climate forecasters were being really accurate.

I did decide up a few new toys before the excursion. A person being a Singh-Ray Gold-N-Blue polarizer. This polarizer is like offering a drug addict an endless offer of funds and earning them immune to the authorized method. I hardly ever took this filter off as it was a terrific prospect to see what it could do. I felt I desired this small “preface” in purchase to support explain some of the significantly out and whacky colors that I will be publishing around the next week or two. And if you do not know about the Gold-N-Blue polarizer by Singh-Ray, browse more in this article.

I hope all people had a terrific prolonged weekend, and I will be bit by bit catching up with you all around the next number of days!
