Kayaker on Lake Tahoe

This was a fortuitous shot. One of those shots you imagine before hand then all too often  it never happens when you get to the spot. While scouting out positions to shoot Bonsai Rock at sunset I decided to wait in the shade of this pine tree while my friend Dali was taking off his waders as he had just come out of the lake. I was gazing at the lake when this kayaker rowed  just outside my frame. I couldn’t believe my luck! I have so often wished for  a surfer, sailboat, or ship to come along when shooting bodies of water. My second thought is usually, ” if I were able to paint I’d put  X right there”.  I was thrilled. I know something like this won’t happen every time I want it to.
