Why I love summers in Tahoe.

Up before dawn with Lynette to shoot the sunrise at Emerald Bay on Lake Tahoe. First out of my pocket was my iPhone, and this the first image of the day. Just point and shoot. No tweaking at all.

After shooting many images from that spot, we wandered over to Eagle Falls and I took this photo. 3 image pano with AutoStitch. Coral ND grad added with Tiffen Photo FX. Then warmed up slightly in Photogene. Amazing. All on the phone.

Now much as I love my iPhone, this was a morning that continued to call out for my "big boy" cameras. This was the shot when the sun finally broke the horizon. Tripod, 2/3 sec shutter speed on each of three exposures (blended in Photomatics). 2 stop neutral density filter on the sky. Loved the result!
