Quite, Dark, Peaceful. and Calm Waters help to create the amazing images that are possible here.

Fallen Leaf has been my favorite spot in all of Tahoe since I can remember. The beautiful shoreline sits right up against the base of Mt. Tallac with almost zero light pollution. It is one of my favorite spots to go and shoot the stars. There are tons of spots to pick from depending on what you are trying to put into your photo. Get out there and enjoy the peaceful water the stars reflect off of.
