Perfect Shot: Tahoe’s Micro Magic

Since we’re starting a two-month special getaway series on Lake Tahoe this month, June’s Perfect Shot emerged as the perfect selection. What looks like a shark’s fin is actually the extraordinary play of splashing water captured by photographer Anthony Obester of Half Moon Bay. Anthony equipped his Canon DSLR camera with a water housing and donned a wetsuit looking for clarity shots in Lake Tahoe. As he tells it, “Instead, we kept noticing a small ripple making crazy patterns in the water.” Shooting 10 frames a second, Anthony captured Lake Tahoe’s “Micro Magic,” barely discernible to the naked eye.
