Duck Swimming to Shore

Here are two videos of a duck that swam to the shore that’s on my families property on a lake near Lake Tahoe. The duck seemed to expecting food and this took place on a late September evening in 2014 before colder weather had settled in for the season.

This was taken at sunset and there is sunlight behind the mountain located in the northwest side of the lake.

A lake at night

Here is a 30 second video that I did on September 10, 2014 at dusk. I’m looking west from a dock and you could barely see lights on the west side of the lake. I had one of my dogs with me and you could hear them shake in the background of the short video. There’s a little light coming from behind the mountain.

Enjoy!

Missing Photographs

I’ve looked through some photographs that I’ve taken over the last couple of years looking for a series of photographs that I took with my iPhone or Canon camera while I was staying at Lake Tahoe. I took this series of photos back in the Fall of 2014, apparently, I didn’t back up my phone with these specific photos with my dogs while Lily Lake near Fallen Leaf Lake in the Sierra Nevada’s. They were on my phone that I wrecked in the fall of 2014 and couldn’t and wasn’t able to use the contents of the phone; let alone to erase the phone before I was able to send it in after I got the replacement phone. Another possibility is that I might have deleted these specific photo’s but I doubt that I did that.

Overcast Sunset at Fallen Leaf Lake

Below is a photograph of a sunset that took one evening on Fallen Leaf Lake back in mid-October 2014 and I took it with my Samsung phone that I had at that time. It was looking towards the Northwest corner of the lake.

Enjoy.

A Video on A Windy Lake

This video is now hosted on Vimeo instead of YouTube because I wanted to try Vimeo for sometime. The video below filmed in October 2014 when I was staying near South Lake Tahoe last year. I might move all of my videos to Vimeo but I’m sure I will yet.

Train Trip Through California

Here are some photographs that I took with my iPad on my way up to Oregon from Arizona. I managed a way to get to school and since I didn’t have my Canon Camera with me to take photographs the “next” best thing to do – is to take a couple of photographs with my iPad.

Granted these aren’t of the best quality of photographs which is kind of expected with a 1 and 1/2 old iPad.

These were between Paso Robles, CA and Salinas, CA except for the body of water in the gallery. Think I took the photograph in Oregon but not sure.

The Amtrak line that took these photos were on the Coast Starlight.

More Duck Videos

Here is a pair of videos that I’ve made while I was at Fallen Leaf Lake, CA. It’s of one Duck that came onto the beach that I was at and next to one of the docks at the property that I was staying at last fall.

These videos were taken at the beginning of September 2014.


Here is a second part video that I took of a duck:

An Unexpected Trip

Well, things have changed for worse over the last few days, to the point where I would myself and my brother would be taking a road trip to Lake Tahoe. Which would be another one year apart from our last trip there.

The circumstances of this road trip which changed our plans of going sooner. We will be there for about a month or two, before we head to Utah for a bit of time. There is one good thing about going sooner is that I’m able to take more photographs all around Lake Tahoe. Along with other points of interest in the region. Well, possible points of interests in the region.

Though, it doesn’t help that I have three weeks left of university classes for the summer term.

Anyways, I would be spending some more time at Lake Tahoe for a bit longer than last year – which is a good thing. Assuming I would be able to get the car fixed as soon as possible.

This post was prompted by a daily prompt called Road Tripping. (I know this post is a few days later than I wanted to post on the web.)

Then, most likely we will be coming back to the northwest to do a few things before heading to Utah for a bit.

 

In the above are three routes that I might take to reach South Lake Tahoe, California. For some reason I’ve like to take road trips to Lake Tahoe during the summer months. Though, time does fly when I’m at Lake Tahoe which is a pain of the backside to no end when I was growing up in California.
