I had a great time at this months Photowalk with the Photowalking Utah group (also on Flickr).  I spent most of the event with my 100mm Macro on which definitely pushed me to see things differently then when I go around with my 28-135 zoom.  I also got to try out my new tripod which was awesome.  I wouldn’t have been able to get this shot or several others without it.

I also had some new Lightroom presets that I used on the pictures in post processing which made it go quite fast and I’m very happy with the results.

The last few days there has been a nice fog in Utah Valley in the mornings.  This has been leaving a beautiful frost on everything making it white everywhere you look.  So this morning I thought I’d venture out and get some shots.  Here are a few of some barbed wire I found encased in frost.  More frost shots to come in future posts.

While at a conference in Boston a few friends and I drove out to see the Boston Temple.  The walk up to the grounds from where we parked in the lower parking lot was absolutely beautiful.  I wish it was a blue sky day, but the colors were still a site to behold.

Aspen Rainbow

Canon 40D, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro, 1/250, f/4.5, 100 mm, ISO 400 On a trip up to Nebo Loop I found an area that had trees with just about every color.  I gathered one of each and found a nice big aspen trunk to lay them on.  Quite pleased with the result. I still need […]

On a trip up to Nebo Loop I found an area that had trees with just about every color.  I gathered one of each and found a nice big aspen trunk to lay them on.  Quite pleased with the result.

I still need to get it printed out as a panorama but am excited to see it in person :)

Edit: Print is beautiful. If you are interested in a copy, my normal printer doesn’t do panoramas (SmugMug) so let me know and we can work something out.

Taken at the June Photowalk out at the Great Salt Lake with my father’s day present to myself (with the wife’s permission) of a new Canon 40D (review to come later).

The phtowalk was great fun.  I didn’t come out with as many winner’s as I would have liked, but I learned quite a bit for any future similar situations (sunset shooting at a lake).  For a truely stunning collection of images go check out the work of the rest of the photowalking utah group.

Frozen Grass

Reflection in a Pond

Canon PowerShot S2 IS, 1/80, f/4, 16 mm I had driven past this several times growing up, and always wanted to take a picture of it. 15 years later I finally did. Proof that it’s not always about the camera. Lighting, subject, color… all way more important.
