this is usually a rather boring meadow during spring and summer and it is really only pretty with the snow :laughing: we're standing in a grocery store parking lot :giggle:

I saw the view as we were driving past and had to turn around and go capture it :love: we're standing in a parking lot :giggle:

(I'm not sure what you mean by the Tv value...:shrug:)

Oh!! :laughing: I have no idea why it shows out like that :shrug: and now that I look at it :wow: whoa, that's a small number :giggle: Also realize that I had the iso way too high for the scene...forgot to change it from the heavy shade where I'd been shooting the day before :doh:

Hey Ruth! :wave: Well, I would say that you elected "Av mode and the camera chose this shutter speed!! :lol: You might want to record this "number" just in case you need to use it again!! :laughing: I agree with you on the ISO too (regarding the subject matter at hand)... but it looks wonderful anyway!! :clap:
I just wrote this comment to bring attention to that wild shutter speed Ruth ... I thought it was rather interesting!! :giggle:
Take care and :hug:s your way!! Lee :heart: :D

Say, isn't that the house from The Godfather movie? ;)

They get snow up there at Tahoe in yards...Experienced a small snowstorm up there once :snowing: Just before the snowplow came by we had decided to eat Jimmy first since he was whining the most :fork: then decided McD's was only across the street so we didn't eat him ;) Jimmy hasn't been on a road trip with us since :shrug:

Beautiful capture, Ruth :clap:

Couldn't say about the Godfather house, lol, I've only read the books :D

Laughed at your decision to eat the whiner :nod: but the Donner Party was at the other end of the lake :giggle:

My daughter actually had a fellow classmate in her university who was a descendant of the Donner family - a brother that didn't leave the east on the ill-fated trip but came later...he said he came from the "smarter" branch :laughing:

Here's a couple shots from a small cemetery we found that is the resting place of other "party" members: [link]

nah...we went up for the afternoon :laughing: left home at about 11:30 and were back by dark (6:30) after having dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant :love:

The Kokonee salmon are still spawning at Taylor Creek which is where the largest mass of aspen are on the South Shore (near Emerald Bay) and since there had been a foot or so of snow early last week we decided to see what we could find...

That was a nice day for sure. Larry still talkes about that awful road going up to emerald bay and if we ever make it back I know it will take a lot of coaxing to get him to drive there again...:)
