Autumn in the Sierras

Photographers who carry their cameras around with them all of the time get the best photos.   That’s what I’ve been told anyway.   And, some days that works out to be a good idea.    I was lucky enough to have my camera with me the other day when I drove up to Lake Tahoe for other work-for-pay activities and managed to get off the beaten path for a couple of minutes to take some pictures.   Enjoy.

This is Spooner Lake and is just up the hill from Carson City, NV, before you make the turn to Lake Tahoe.   I think a lot of people are distracted by the beauty of Tahoe and forget what a little gem this one is.

It’s hard for me to resist a good look at some aspens changing colors in contrast to the pine trees here.   A little touch of red would have made it all too perfect.

It was a little breezy at Tahoe today but the big blue sky and big blue water are still so inviting.   I could sit at this bench all day.

Maybe, I should.    This is a much better spot than any office.

Don’t tell this cute little butterfly that winter is coming … and that I am looking forward to it, too.
