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 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!

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!
