beautiful spot! i'd love to pitch a tent on that lakeshore and spend a week trooping around with my FZ20!!
Me too. I got a free pass at the entrance guard house just to see what it was like around the lake and there are many wonderful campsites. You have to pay to camp there, but I like that, because it helps to keep the riffraff out. I may go camping there next year, and if I do, I'll take lots of pics.

Thanks. All I did to the pics is kick up the contrast and a little sharpening and spot burning to diminish the haze in the background, no color work at all.

Beautifull pictures and countryside. You did a good job of capturing the beauty. I used to live near there in Camino and have been to Jenkinson and Tahoe many times. Looking forward to going back. Enjoyed your Tahoe pictures too. They bring back fond memories.:-)

We go camping there every year. Great lake, great camping - just very dirty. The dirt is like clay - sticks to everything

Thanks everyone for commenting.

suze - The lake is a man made reservoir, I think I just got lucky with the light hitting the water just at the right angle to reflect the blue sky, cause close up the water looks more green.

P.S. If you like these kind of pictures, check out my previous post on Lake Tahoe. I remember as a young man (40 years ago) being on a boat out on the lake and the water was so clear that I could clearly see the giant boulders hundreds of feet beneath the water. BTW, just as a point of reference, Jenkinson Lake is at 4000 feet and Lake Tahoe is at 6000 feet.

Here's a pic of the dam wall of Jenkinson Lake.

Your pictures brought back lots of memories Hiroshi. There happens to be a small waterfall there too if you hike in a bit but looks like you were viewing from the dam.

I used to fish there alot and caught some very tasty dinners there. Mmm trout.

Mahalo for sharing beautiful shots,

Tom

Tom, I'm amazed at how many people on this forum have been to this out of the way lake. It certainly is a small world after-all
