Washoe Lake Feb 16 2017

When there's water, Washoe Lake can be quite photogenic. This is a very shallow lake that catches runoff from the eastern Sierras. It was bone dry until recently. Late afternoon light really brought out the subtle colors of the high desert. Washoe Lake is just a few miles north of Carson City Nevada. Home Planet Images ref # 3605
