The lupine at Lake Forest Beach in Lake Tahoe not only grow in abundance, but are also quite tall. I'm one who really likes to try and get just what I want in my shot and will do my best to position myself to do just that. In this case, I couldn't pass up the fog developing on the lake, but the problem was at 5'4", most of the lupine bushes were taller than me. Luckily there is a trail here on a bit of a berm which put me just high enough to capture the expansive field with all the elements I wanted in the background. Bonus for me was the lovely sunrise and warm weather to compliment a very pleasant morning wandering among the wildflowers.
