Lake Tahoe 2011 Part 4 - Including Donner Lake

I recently went to Lake Tahoe for vacation. Took some photos. :) There wasn't a lot of snow this year though. The weather patterns have been really weird recently. Anyways. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Lake Tahoe is a large fresh water lake in the Sierra Nevada of United States. It is located on the state line of California and Nevada. The lake is 1645 feet deep making it the second deepest lake in the USA (#1 is Crater Lake in Oregon). Lake Tahoe is a major tourist attraction in both California and Nevada. It is home to a number of ski resorts, summer recreation areas, and other tourist attractions. The Nevada side also includes high amounts of casinos which also attracts quite some people.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing.

Today's post will be landscapes again. There is only 7 more photos today. LOL I'm trying to evenly distribute the rest of my photos. Anyways, I think the first few photos is of Donner Lake. Not that sure though. XD Seriously Canon, why you didn't give the EOS 7D built-in geo-tagging features?!

This season was so dry. All that snow you see is artificial... This is Soda Springs. They were being very strict on who can get in this year. If you wanted to get in, you have to pay $5. I guess it is so the snow won't melt that fast as this would turn away a lot of people. I didn't go in. LOL Cheap Asian here. :P I took a few photos from outside and left.

The next post will be 7 more post of landscape photography. I have 12 more photos left, usually I'd put them all into one post, but a few of them I reserved for an introduction to circular polarizers. So... :) Anyways, don't forget to share today's post with family and friends!
