Once again I went out to the Great Salt Lake to take some pic's. This time at sunset. Well close to sunset. Getting out there was a bit more difficult than anticipated given that they were doing road work, but I got there none the less. I wanted to take some pic's of the flatness of the shore and the lake and the lack of features except for the distant mountains. As usual, if you look, you will always find something else to focus on. And I did. I still got what I intended but with a little added bonus. I have a few more than the five here. I will post them at a later date.

Here we are already into April and in fact nearing the end of the month. How time flies. It's not that I haven't been out taking pictures, it's just that I am, for some reason just not posting them as I should. Having said that I thought I would post a few I took back in January out at the Great Salt Lake Saltair Pleasure Palace. At least that is where I spent the morning. In the afternoon I spent my time in downtown Salt Lake. Hitting these two spots makes the long trek worthwhile.

Well, it's been quite a while since I last posted on my blog. I have had a problem finding inspiration, so, I went and bought the book "Zen Camera" by David Ulrich. I have read it through beginning to end and have decided that I will try to follow his advice and see if I can't develop some inspiration as I go along. In the meantime I have gone back to one of my favorite subjects and decided to photograph him/her from a different angle than I have in the past. Although it was the wrong time of day to photograph I still wanted to see what I would get. Trying to develop that eye.
Enjoy the two images and I will be back soon.

I step out of my home this morning and drove, I swear, only a mile or two to take these two images of the mountains. I have taken images of them before but the light, the clouds were a little different this morning than they have been in the past. It is not the subject that interests me as much as it is the light. It is the light that makes it interesting, that brings life to it, emotion.

Still working on getting the right light at the right time of day. Here is an evening shot (mountain overlooks the south end of Salt Lake County) and two morning shots (mountain overlooking the northern end of Utah County at the mouth of American Fork Canyon). All shot are looking east and the mountains run north/south. All shots were at F8/ISO 100 in aperture priority mode.

Here is something a little different. There is an abandoned solar energy facility just west of Delta, UT. There are a number of structures still standing as a testament to their durability, however, it was their vulnerability to the weather that caused the demise of the facility. It only lasted a couple of years. On the sight there are a number of abandoned trucks, scissor lifts, tractors, trailors, etc. What a waste of money to just leave this material out there to rust. Why couldn't the items be sold and the facility dismantled and sold? We'll never know.
