I’ve always Salt Lake was pretty cool.  I don’t get there very often these day so recently when I was there with my camera I thought I would grab a couple of pics.  I wound up with three that had reflections in them so I thought I would share.  One is in the Brigham Young park of the water wheel and pond there.  On other popular pic of the temple in the reflecting pool.  The last of City Creek.  Enjoy.

It’s become a tradition to have  Thanksgiving with my wife’s family at their ranch.  It’s a lot of fun and great food.  Basically everything Thanksgiving is supposed to be.  Conditions haven’t been great for grabbing photos but I did catch this one which I really liked.  This one taken looking north late in the afternoon across a pond that’s on the ranch.  I did a little bit of post processing, but not much.  This was shot at ISO 200 1/200 second at f9.0. I used my 18-135mm lens set at 35mm.

Thankful for the beauty that surrounds me every day.

As far as chronology goes this is out of order, but I don’t think you’ll care.  So I’ll just say we went to Breckenridge, Colorado a couple of weeks ago to start an extended fall color tour.  Well we were too early.  There was a very little color.  If I get around to it I’ll share those later.  Last week we went to Island Park like we’ve been doing the last couple of Septembers and it was awesome.  Last year we were too late so we scheduled an earlier slot this year.  Again not a lot a color when we got there.  After a couple of pretty cool days and some time fishing while it was snowing, the fall color was coming on.  What I’m sharing here are pictures I took the last day we were there and the area these are taken in is a rather small isolated area.

The area was pretty diverse.  We’ve got a panorama of a pond in sunlight and everything else in shade from the clouds.  These pictures were taken about 6:30 pm so a half an hour before sunset.  I love what I call an angry sky and there’s a good one in these shots.  Other shots are all individual exposures.  I usually shoot fall color with a aperture of f8 or so.  The individual tree with the blurred background was taken with 100mm lens opened up to f2.8.

Enjoy!
