A crystal clear winter night at Lake Tahoe in Nevada. Winter stars in the northern hemisphere sky appear along the Milky Way. Sirius is on the left and prominent figure of constellation Orion, the Hunter, in the middle. Taurus and dazzling planet Jupiter is on the right. Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater alpine lake in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. At 1,645 ft (~ 500 m) deep its the the United State’s second-deepest lake (after Crater Lake in Oregon). From the photographer: “I was most pleased with the stillness of the lake and the resultant star reflections. I am not sure how often this happens, as the lake is big (over 21 miles across) and very deep.”
