I believe looking across Tahoe and Emerald Bay that would be a California sunrise.

Sorry Keema, Karl was right, it is a sunset. My other Maggies Peak photo is a California/Nevada sunrise. -Fred

Wow!!! Wished I could have been there. I don't think I've ever seen a sunset where the color extended to the east like that.

I drove up from Sac on a day when the weather channel showed a thin layer of clouds because these often produce the best colors. The clouds opposite a setting sun reach their most saturated color when the last rays of sun hit them, which is roughly 15-20 minutes before the best colors appear in the direction of the sun. Switch everything for a sunrise. For the Emerald Bay sunrise photo I drove up while it was dark and was lucky that the sun rose just before the band of clouds move further east.

With a little glow on the foreground left lake and the pines. Looks like Tahoe and far shore are out there in the sky!
