Photographer's Note

Whew! It's good to be back. I'm sneaking in a shot while I have a few moments. Busy semester!

I used to hate snow, having moved to Utah, with it's famous powdery snow, from California. I never did trade in my surfboard for skis, but I have learned to really enjoy winter. As a photographer, I find it one of the most exciting times to shoot.

This is in the steep canyon just above Heber City, Utah. There are few ways to get from the western part of the state to the eastern part in winter, and this is one of the three roads, often closed, that allow one to do so.

The Christmassy trees at left are sub-alpine firs. The other sare Utah Junipers. The snow was coming in at an angle, but you'll be proud of me as I set up my tripod in the freezing weather. I kept a plastic bag on the camera to keep it dry, and when taking the actual shot, I had to remove my hat and cover the camera. Brrrrr!

The next day, the snow was three feet deeper here, and clear skies made for some fine snow shoeing!

(See the workshop for a b/w version of this photo. I'm weird with color, as many of you know, but I did prefer the subtle blues and greens and cyans in the color. I'd love to know what you think!).
