Shutterbug Photo of the Day: “Early Season Snow” by Douglas Croft

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day by Douglas Croft features the stunning view of a distant shore captured from between snow-covered trees.

“I was fortunate to be in the Sierras for the first snowstorm of the year. We need many more like this! Lake Tahoe is always beautiful, but add some snow in the trees and it gets spectacular pretty quickly,” writes Croft.

The image was captured with a Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 18-300mm lens at ISO 200, f/8, 1/320 sec.
