Christmas on Bass Lake

We had planned to film the Christmas Tree lighting in Oakhust but at the last minute decided to take in the sunset on Bass Lake. The sunset turned in to a full moonrise and we found ourselves in awe of the beauty of the lake under a cold December sky. Light from the many cabins on the far shore reflected in the mirror perfect water and the pines backlit by moonlit smoke from many fireplaces and fog that had clung to the hills during sunset. It was a great evening having earlier had a Bald Eagle fly directly over but alas too dark to capture his swift wings as he flew quickly across the lake. The majesty of the Sierra Mountains never ceases to amaze me and is a favorite subject for my photography.
