This old Juniper stands over Emerald Bay as if it has been guarding this precious scene for hundreds of years. Emerald Bay is the most photographed place in the United States, and no wonder. Lake Tahoe is a marvelous place and Emerald Bay is the essence of Lake Tahoe. I am inspired every time I stop to photograph its magnificent beauty and changing moods. Most often, though, I just spend time enjoying the view.
