Loon Lake Crystal Basin Recreation Area California by kayaksailor Loon Lake Crystal Basin Recreation Area California by kayaksailor
Another lake that is usually covered with five feet of snow...Loon Lake in the Sierra Nevada range west of Lake Tahoe in the Crystal Basin Recreation Area.

We went driving here on the Saturday before Valentine's Day, it snowed the next day and several people got stranded for three days...glad we'd gone earlier.

It was exceedingly bright with all the snow so I was able to have a fairly low iso - the f stop was my choice for getting some depth of field; but to be honest I'm not always thinking about it and often it is just luck :laughing:

I haven't had a lot of experience with shoot in snow and it's a challenge for sure! Especially when the shadows are deep with afternoon side light...
