Here are a some random shots that I took while exploring around Lake Tahoe during the first week of January. I have one thing to say, snow is hard to photograph (and look at). I had heard the term snow blindness but god damn! Shit's bright. I forgot my sunglasses one day and suffered, I was walking around hissing and squinting like .... well like a vampire. No not this kind, more like this. Any how, here is what I managed between my hissing fits and my moments of cold. I didn't realize how cold it gets once the sun goes down in snowy weather. Also after one slip on the ice I learned how to be nimble. I ass-planted really hard and managed not to spill my beer or tea. Don't judge me! I was cold but wanted a beer so I thought having tea as well would balance me out.
