Out Takin' Pictures at the Great Salt Lake


My step-son-in-law snapped this shot yesterday. I think it's purty sweet.
Let me tell ya, I hate, hate, hate walking in sand. Once I got close to the weeds, the sand was light and fluffy. I was quickly in past my ankles and thinkin' I was in quicksand. Luckily, I made it out alive.

Has Spring sprung in Utah Yet? And, what have you got planned for this years garden?

Not quite sprung yet, but it has been lovely. Nothing unusual for the garden. Just basics like tomatoes, peppers, corn, beans, etc. I wish we could grow carrots or cruciferous vegs, but they don't do well in our soil.

They come at night, mostly.

 
 

Went up north hoping to see the aurora from the most recent sun flares. Unfortunately, no flares, but I did figure out how to take some pretty star shots. I feel like I've developed a new toy! The possibilities of night shots are endless. It takes a LOOOONG exposure time (30 seconds or so), so one can't be too creative in the winter cold, but come summer...watch out!
By the way, the shadowing in these shots was from a full moon. It turned the night into day!
