Fantastic shot, Myrl.  I think the water in Lake Tahoe is one of the prettiest colors I've ever seen.

Stunning Myrl - absolutely gorgeous composition! I used to live in Tahoe, a couple hundred years ago - and before I was into photography. Need to go back one day....

Kathleen - You're very welcome. . .Thanks for visiting!

Duane - I'm glad you like it!

Mary -  Yes, the water is beautiful!  When I was up there this morning, I sat on a bench at a park there and watched as the sun pranced from ripple to ripple.  The color is a deep blue topaz color.

Gerry - You can smell the fresh air, and the pine trees!

Debi - When you go back, I want pictures from your camera with your skills.

William -It's one of my favorite places too.  Fortunately, I'm cradled in the Sacramento Valley, an hour an a half between San Francisco to the West, and Tahoe to the East.  And Napa wine country is a mere hour away.  There is always something to see and do, even in the early morning hours.

Looks like Echo Pass to me.  We live just east of Tahoe - we are the county seat for the Nevada side of the South Shore - where the casinos are.  You've likely been to Minden, Gardnerville - our home.  Fun to see such a beautiful picture of our backyard.  Tahoe is a natural beauty and the view you took is many people's first view of the Lake.  Nice picture!

Words fail me - On the other hand, I made your orzo salad and it was a huge hit - I used dried cranberries instead of craisons and they were a wonderful counterpoint to the Kalamata olives I also used the Mexican cheese (because it's what I had) instead of Feta.

Jim - You right!  Echo Pass it is!  I've spent some time over in Minden and Garnderville too.  Nice area, which is very relaxed.

Sandy - I remember being a little afraid of that area when my parents would drive me to Tahoe when I was a kid.  But still in awe of the beauty.

Jack and Izzy - I'm glad to see you back.  I'd been worried about you two!

Janice - I'm gald the orzo salad worked out for you!  I've used dried craberries too.  I think they are probably the same thing.  The recipe is fairly forgiving, so you can switch things around as you like.
