The image associated with my profile was taken from my deck (altitude - 7,200 ft.) facing SouthWest looking out over Lake Tahoe just after sunset during the twilight time with light reflecting off the clouds and the lake (altitude - 6,100 ft.). You can see the Sierra Nevada mountains near Squaw Valley in the distance.
