Photo – Home Sweet Home

As a long time Tahoe local, I still catch myself mesmerized by the majestic vibrant blue of Lake Tahoe. I have looked at this view for over twenty years from just about every angle and perspective possible. I feel lucky to call Tahoe my backyard and even more lucky to use it as one of the main subjects of my work.

The observation deck at the top of the Heavenly Gondola is arguably one of the most amazing vistas in the Tahoe basin. As I stood there on this beautiful June afternoon I caught myself lost in the moment, almost as if it was my first time seeing this view.

I love meeting people who are new to Tahoe, there is this amazing excitement and euphoria just spewing out of them. When I look at the photo below, these are some of the thoughts that run through my mind.
