“Nature’s Light” by Tahoe photographer, Susan Hartzell.

Susan focuses on shapes and colors found in nature, and uses only natural light to achieve her stunning results. Photography is her passion. She has won numerous awards and recognition for her images, and her works are featured in several private collections.

Hartzell, a resident of South Lake Tahoe for more than 30 years, started taking photos after enrolling in a class at the Lake Tahoe Community College. She has successfully balanced several roles: mother, nurse, world traveller, board member, and survivor of the Angora Fire. She lost her home and many of her photographs and negatives in the fire.
