Lake Powell Sunset

Lake Powell Sunset

I took a photo of the birds before the moon rose, and then another after the moon peeked out from behind the mountain, then combined them.

Lake Powell Sunset - 2017

Lake Powell, Utah

Finally getting around to editing photos from Lake Powell taken at the beginning of the month. LP sunsets are the best!!! This tranquil, peaceful scene was taken from the back of the houseboat. You'd never guess that behind me, in the front of the houseboat, there was a noisy, happy, wonderful group of children, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends creating memories to last a lifetime!

Golden Leaves


Lo! I am come to autumn,
When all the leaves are gold;
Grey hairs and golden leaves cry out
The year and I are old.

Golden Utah Aspens

When I have to shoot in the middle of the day, (which usually means unattractive harsh light for landscapes), I try to embrace the sun and all the interesting ways that various camera lenses and settings affect direct sunlight. Besides, in a few months we'll be anxious for more sun and warmth!

Mt. Timpanogos with Fall Colors

Mt. Timpanogos

For those not familiar with northern Utah, this is the northern side of this beautiful mountain, or what I call the 'backside'.  Usually my photos are of the south side which I think shows off its beauty better.  This backside view is reached by a beautiful winding road called the Alpine Loop.  It starts about 10 minutes from my home, and has an elevation of around 8000 ft, (Mt. Timpanogos itself is around 11,800 ft in elevation).  On the other side of the summit is Robert Redford's Sundance Ski Resort, and the Loop eventually ends in Provo Canyon.  Such a beautiful drive!
