Back to processing some images today, I have so many more to go over still. Tahoe being one of my favorite places to visit I decided to work on this set of images. This is a 5 image stitch taken at 50mm with the trusty canon 5D and the 24-70 lens. I tried stitching this in CS3 and PTGui and this time round PTGui did the job a little better.
Some Lake Tahoe facts
Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the US at around 1,645 feet with around 70 miles of coastline of which arond 2/3rd’s is in California the rest being Nevada. Sand Harbor itself is in Nevada and quite a drive from South Tahoe or Stateline. The shoreline water level is around 6200 feet elevation and the water because of the depth pretty much stays the same at around temp of around 70F.
The clarity of the water is something to see, and I have heard around 180 feet. With that being said there is a group trying to preserve this called Keep Tahoe Blue.
