Wrights Lake sunrise



See larger here!

Not quite an epic-off-the-charts sunrise last week at Wrights Lake near Lake Tahoe -- but a pretty good one. With a few more clouds, the sunbeams would have been more pronounced but this was the best of the four sunrises during my stay at the lake.

I have a few other shots of the sun above the peak and reflecting in the water -- but those are tough to process because of lens flare and the brightness of the sun on the right side of the photo. The images come close to working -- but close isn't good enough. 

Camera & Settings: Nikon D5100, ISO 100, 1/15th shutter speed at f/22, camera on a tripod. Shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom with VSCO slide film presets. 

Buy a print of this photo here -- they're inexpensive and a print makes a nice gift for anyone else who loves this little corner of the Sierra Nevada.
