Bonsai Rock Lake Tahoe

Yesterday I posted a photo of this same exact place on my Facebook. This is the famous Bonsai Rock in Lake Tahoe. It’s exactly a mile South from Sand Harbor Beach on the Nevada side, very easy to get to if you ever want to go there. (There is 2 pull outs on the side of the road, one dirt and one asphalt if you get to the asphalt one you went to far, Park on the dirt one)

Yesterday I went down there and waited patiently for the sunset, to be fair it was breath taking and I had an incredible time, but from a photographers perspective I knew there could be a better shot.

Today was the day. I woke up and I had an itch about going back. I kept looking at the sky and the clouds looked kind of funky, nothing too exiting but there was the possibility of awesomeness in the making. I kept going back and forth in my head about going back to shoot the sunset once again, I finally said fuck it and headed back to Bonsai Rock. (its about an hour from where Im at right now)

When I got there this is what I saw, an epic sunset over the lake. Its moments like this I live for and today paid off. Not only that but I met two other really cool photographers, we all had big fat grins watching magic happen right in front of us.  I get a kick that other people get a kick from what I get a kick from :)
