National Creek Falls

I really dislike winter in northern Utah where it is cold, windy, smoggy and usually snowy.  Although I must admit, we have had a mild winter so far, with very little snow in the valley where I live.  And I feel guilty complaining when I think about everyone dealing with mountains of snow and freezing temperatures.  Still, I'm not out taking photos very much and often feel claustrophobic if I'm indoors for too long. 

On a positive note, I usually force myself to go through my photos from the previous year, and organize, edit, delete, and upload to my Smugmug account for 'cloud' storage.  This is a constant battle because with digital it is so easy to take tons of photos!  (Sometimes I long for the old days of simple photo albums.  It forced me to be very selective about the photos I took and saved.)  

Anyway, as I am organizing, I usually find a bunch I just didn't get around to editing or some I overlooked but when revisited, decided they might be keepers after all.  Such is the following photo I took on a little get-away vacation Jeff and I took to Oregon last September.  I think I'll keep it!

I'm glad you went back to this one. It's a real winner. Love the angle and the way the water rushes down the green cliffs.

Great photo. I need to organize and delete my photos too. I did so once but they could use more work yet I struggle with deleting some for as though they are not interesting enough to display, they do bring back memories of that moment. In time memories may be all we have left.

That's a great idea to take the time in the winter to organize and go through old pictures. Come spring and summer time you will be out taking many more beautiful pictures. I love this one you captured in Oregon!
