We all have a decent feel for how Tahoe works. Clouds roll in, the wind blows, the lake has waves, and the light changes. But, nothing creates a better understanding than seeing all these things occur in together and in fast-motion. When the clouds and wind and waves and light all change simultaneously right before our eyes, we’re able to gather a deeper understanding of Lake Tahoe itself.
Take the 1:37-mark in the video for example. We’ve never seen how the waves on the lake and the wind above the lake move in unison. To actually see the wind affecting the lake on a large scale in fast-motion is eye opening. You can watch as each gust of wind grinds along the lakes surface, roughens the water, and pushes that rough patch 22 miles across the lake.
Josh Michaels’ “Tahoe Blue” is a wonder to behold and an educational experience for even the most die-hard Lake Tahoe local.
