Eagle Falls that sunrise, was one of the most colorful sunrises I've photographed at Lake Tahoe. I was happy to be able to stay over in South Lake Tahoe over the break. I thought I would drive out to Eagle Falls, Lake Tahoe, which is a popular location to photograph a sunrise. I woke up half asleep, making the drive up the mountain to Emerald Bay to find the sky lighting up for a burn. I have been disappointed here before, so I wasn’t expecting much, but when the colors went from cool to warms, I went nuts. I rushed out to Eagle Falls skating on the ice as I set up my tripod, attempting to get any shot. The colors went off in the sky reflecting the waterfalls. It was such a great experience and a moment I soon won't forget.
