We had originally booked a normal, non-view room, for one night and expected to be located near the front of the property, facing the highway. When we saw our room, a free upgrade to a lakefront room with a stunning view, we wasted no time in extending our stay another day!
Here’s a photo of our room (HDR, naturally, though in this case the high dynamic range technique was required to open up the room while preserving the view of the lake):
And here’s a photo of a watercolor painting I created while looking at the lake from our room. Yes, this the 1st public unveiling of one of my watercolor paintings; I was inspired to take up watercolor painting after visiting Paris last year.
Don’t forget, you can click on the images to view a larger version (without leaving this page!)
A set of images showing the painting at various stages from a sketch to the final version, and including a reference photo of what I saw, is available at flickr in my Lake Tahoe Watercolor set.
