Here is my Vee lake/Seven Gables shot.

Thanks Jody....I've always love that shot of your's from Vee Lake.
I don't recall the exact exposure time, but its on the minutes scale (don't have the original file handy to see). I've found there is definitely more noise in digital than film (although the new cameras now are pretty awesome). It can be dealt with to a certain extent but beyond that your stuck - you can't really see it with this size but I'd be hesitant to print something like this extremely large due to the noise.

This is either super super late afternoon, or extremely early evening, looking over the outlet of Evolution Lake, which was created.
It's all about the WILDERNESS!!!

madeintahoe, your shots are VERY good and this one is AWESOME! Not only is it a beautiful photo, but it's of a rarely photographed, remote place that took a lot of sweat and calories to reach! Congrats on the front page of Webshots, well deserved! =D>

Congratulations Madein,

I know a lake that looks strikingly similar...

I will return to this area, one of my favorites

I have had stuff on Webshots for about 7 years and NEVER had anything picked. That is great! Makes you feel good, doesn't it?

Buck, you get my vote for the best line I have ever read on HST:

Mav, love that Red Spur Basin image, brought back vivid memories of my brief visit to the area. That is one beautiful, remote, and pristine basin (love the Kaweah shot too ;)).

Here's another wildlife shot, taken in SEKI
