Beautiful Light

Yesterday I was in Draper and decided to come home over Traverse Mtn. It was just before sunset and when I reached the top and looked east, I saw beautiful puffy clouds hanging over American Fork canyon. I couldn't control the steering wheel and somehow I took a 35 minute detour up the canyon. It was a well spent 35 minutes. This is what I saw at Tibble Creek Reservoir.

Angels Among Us

The photos of children I love best are ones that give me a glimpse of their sweet innocence and also a 'look' that shows their unique personality. This is our angel baby Gavin who was 'Mr. Personality Plus'. (To see more of my favorite children's pix go to and click on the 'New Photos' button in the Nav Bar. For family & friends who do not live nearby, you can see photos of our grandchildren.)

What Kind of Bird am I?

There is a little pond filled with reeds wedged in between the freeway and a mall parking lot. I came out of the mall and saw a flock of these birds resting in the reeds. I had my camera in the car and spent a few minutes watching them. They seemed oblivious to the cars all around them. It was a pretty sight to see these black & orange birds among the brown reeds. Reminds me that there is beauty everywhere if we take time to look.

The Sentinel

This looks like a Halloween photo. This guy was certainly not afraid of me, and cooperated nicely while I snapped away.

Wintry Day In Apline

Saturday was a cold, dreary, wintry day and I needed a break, so I grabbed my camera and challenged myself to find something to photograph. This picture and the two following are what I came up with.

I Told You We Took a Wrong Turn!

These guys were in someone's backyard/pasture. (I bet I'm not the only one wondering what am I doing living here in the snow!)

I'm Outta Here!

Here is a duck on a mission. He was moving as fast as his little webbed feet could take him.
