Monochrome Process - Lake Tahoe/Reno 2012

I have only recently started going into monochrome (black and white) photo processing. I have went back and redone some of my old photos into monochrome (black and white) photos. Here today, I have photos from my 2012 trip to Reno and Lake Tahoe. You can see those original photos here.

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. To see my best Lake Tahoe/Reno/Donner Lake photos from 2012, use this link. To see all of my photos from this trip, use this link.

Message from the Photographer: If you have been following me, you know that I am planning to open up a portfolio for my photography. I plan on doing so after I am done with my road trip photos from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. I am almost done with those, therefore I already started planning for the portfolio. There will be several changes coming up. My photography business name will be "Naturetastic Photography" and I have already purchased my own domain which is "". This blog will get it's own "subdomain" and will also be rebranded as Naturetastic Blog and the main domain will be linked to my portfolio. The Facebook page will be also rebranded, but my Twitter account will not change. Right now, the domain just redirects you to this blog because I haven't finished setting up the portfolio yet. I will continue providing you guys with blog posts here, and the old URLs will still work so there isn't anything you have to do on your end. I hope you guys enjoy these changes!

This photo was shot after sunset. I stopped at the Vista Point on I-80 to see Donner Lake. This photo was a 30 second exposure. This photo was from Part 1

 This was from my trip from Reno to Truckee, CA to go see Donner Lake. This photo is from the Hirschdale Road Exit (bridge) on I-80 near Truckee, CA. This photo was from Part 7

I think this might be Donner Creek? Not too sure though. Photo taken on the bridge on the east side of Donner Lake facing east. At approximately +39° 19' 25.31", -120° 14' 13.41" (Thanks Google Maps!). On the mountain in the distance is the Abandoned Central Pacific Railroad (CPRR) Tunnels. This photo was also from Part 7

I think this was on my trip from Truckee, CA to Lake Tahoe. Where exactly I don't know. I found a place on the road and turned out because it looked beautiful covered in snow. It seems to be some kind of hiking trail head. Not too sure because everything was drowned in snow. This is an HDR composition I turned into a black and white. This photo was from Part 10

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed them. Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
