Photographing Zephyr Cove Sunset

Rate this Adventure Lake Tahoe Zephyr Cove Campground

Added by Connor Morris

  • Crystal clear, calm water for perfect reflections
  • Incredible sunsets
  • Many rocks in foreground

After pulling into the parking it is only a a few minute walk right down to the beach. This place is incredible for sunrise and and sunset. The water is so calm because its tucked back in the cove which gives awesome reflections of the sky in the water. Make sure to bring a tripod and neutral density filters to capture the best sunset and sunrise images.
