Star Trails over Fallen Leaf Lake and Mt. Tallac, Lake Tahoe, California
Mt. Tallac, at 9,735 feet, is reflected at night in Fallen Leaf Lake in the southern Lake Tahoe area. Mt. Tallac is facing the western night sky, such that stars on the left side of the photo streak downwards, while the stars on the right streak upwards, creating a unique pattern of star trails.
