The Blazing Skies at Lake Tahoe

North Lake Tahoe shores are lined by huge granite boulders. For an alpine environment that gets a lot of snow and crazy weather, Lake Tahoe still boasts 274 days of sunshine a year!

That’s a haven for a landscape photographer – I’ve always walked home with awesome sunset/sunrise shots 95% of the time I go out shooting in North Lake Tahoe.

How to get to Lake Tahoe?

Drive!

There’s a couple of airports nearby and certainly shuttles and buses, but you’ll be missing out on the really cool spots around the lake if you don’t have a car.

I recommend you circle the lake, it encompasses multiple highways such as Highway 89, 50, and 28.

I have an epic guide on where are the best spots to photograph in Lake Tahoe. It has both the California and Nevada side. It also includes the place photographed above.

Read my camera and photography guides if you want to capture scenes like this. Here’s a guide about the best travel camera. Here’s one about the best mirrorless cameras. How about the best DSLR cameras?
