I love this photo. It had just snowed in Reno and Tahoe was getting tons of snow too. My goal in this road trip was to take a great photo of Tahoe. But living in New York I just missed the big mountains and the outdoors. Everything was so beautiful on my drive I was so happy to be driving. Even though we were in ski resort traffic. I was stopped waiting for traffic, and I looked up and just loved what I was looking at. I love the contrast of the blinding white snow, the dark green trees, the brilliant blue sky, so I snapped a photo, right from my car. The point of this is that even though I was on my way to take some photos I wasn't expecting this one, and it turned out to be the best of the whole day.
You never know when you'll have an opportunity to take a great photo.
Always take a camera wherever you go.
