Camping at Gold Lake

Camping on the beach at Gold Lake, Sierra County, Sherri Meyer Photography,

Sunset on Lower Cascade Lake

Lower Cascade Lake, Placer County, Sherri Meyer Photography,

This photo of beautiful Cascade Lake in Placer County was captured years ago on slide film. Prior to getting this shot, I did what most film photographers do at least once. I shot a whole roll with no film in the camera! Photo by Sherri Meyer
