On my recently completed Lake Tahoe workshop, our group was treated to this exquisite display of dawn light at Emerald Bay. Mother Nature was less than kind for most of the workshop as wintery conditions persisted, but she played nice with us for this one and this was the result. This is a single frame with the sky knocked-down with a 2-stop Singh-Ray soft-edge grad. Personally, I have never seen the light spread this perfectly from this location before!
