Tahoe Winter Wonderland: Snowy Landscape Images of Lake Tahoe
Updated: Jan 8, 2020
Lake Tahoe is a stunning place to photograph anytime of year but winter is by far my favorite season. The mountains surrounding the lake are heavily covered in snow and contrast beautifully against the crystal clear turquoise lake. Some of the best beaches in Lake Tahoe are often deserted leaving the water undisturbed and glass-like. And the blanket of fresh snow adds something special to Tahoe’s already amazing views.
Here are a few snowy landscapes taken at some of my favorite locations in Tahoe during my last visit this past March of 2019.
Paddle boarders make for a great subject to photograph at Lake Tahoe. Not only do they add perspective, they always look so tranquil. This image was taken along Tahoe's east shore.
Snow covered morning at Hidden Beach on Lake Tahoe's east shore.
Snowy views of Incline Village. This trail is usually busy during the summer months with hikers who like to take their picture with Monkey Rock.
Winter sunrise at Emerald Bay.
Winter views of Tahoe's curves facing Southwest from the Flume Trail.
One of my favorite shots from my last visit in March. I was a little nervous while hiking this trail because although it's a short trail; it was deserted, covered in snow, and I was by myself. There were previous foot tracks which made me feel a little better and somewhat safe so I kept going. It was all worth it because I got to capture this beautiful snow covered view at the top.
