Ivins, Utah - January Rainstorm

Ivins, Utah - January Rainstorm

.....and the much needed rains came to the deserts of southern Utah, creating seasonal waterfalls and a misty, magical scene to enjoy and photograph. This is 5 minutes from our southern Utah home but just out of the frame are beautiful homes in Kayenta that have this view every day.

I think watching sunsets must be a natural remedy to lower blood pressure and stress! This is what I saw last evening at Gunlock Reservoir.

Grand Canyon Overlook





Here's a few more photos I initially ignored, taken in March of 2018, but rethinking that they deserve a little love, if only to remember one of our RZR (ATV) trips last year. We rode from St. George to this remote Grand Canyon overlook. I don't remember if it had a name, but we were in Whitmore Canyon.

Sunset on Timp

I've been organizing photos from 2018 and came across this one that I had previously ignored. Maybe because I took so many photos of beautiful fall scenes this past year, this one just got overlooked, or maybe because now that all the leaves and color are gone, I needed a reminder of how much I love Utah where I can drive down a country lane 5 minutes from home, and enjoy an autumn sunset like this! (PS, I edited to crop and correct exposure, but did not increase color saturation.)

Twilight at Sand Hollow State Park

The soft light, soft shadows and soft muted colors of early twilight create a peaceful winter scene at Sand Hollow State Park in southern Utah.
