SEPTEMBER 2003 – Tenaya Lake, Yosemite National Park, California, on a sunny day. Photo © Mark Zanzig/zanzig.com
The story behind the image
We had entered Yosemite National Park at its eastern entrance and now drove up Tioga Road. Long windings and just light traffic, fortunately. Then we approached Tenaya Lake with picnic areas, trailheads, and – several beaches! By the end of September, the water was already pretty cold, so we could not see any people in the water, except for some anglers. I was stunned by the clarity of the water and the silent, undisturbed scenery.
For this photo, I put the polarized filter on the 28 mm wide angle lens to reduce the surface reflections and further enhance this photo.
