North Fork Teton River

North Fork Teton River Near Sugar City

Planned on going out last night to photograph.  Took a nap and woke up at 8:05.  Got up.  Put on my boots and drove here by 8:10.  Made a few images.  The light was gone by 8:20.  Forgot that my image quality was set to medium jpeg from the last shoot.  Just lucky the exposure was pretty good.

Spiral Jetty, Great Salt Lake

Ever since reading about Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty (1970) in college in the 1980s, I have wanted to visit the site.  Sunday morning after the Antelope Island shoot, I made a detour to see the jetty.  Got their around 10:00 AM and left at 11:27.  Next time I go I'll camp out in the area for a few days hoping for the photo gods to smile down with some light shows and shoot from a platform I am thinking of making for the top of my van.  I remember seeing an image of the jetty made by Darren Clark, I think last year.  It was absolutely stunning.  It still inspires me to explore this earthwork.

Shot these Images last Saturday with Wayson Wight, a talented Utah photographer.  It was very a enjoyable evening of conversation and photography.  Check out his work at his website .  I made these images in the quickly changing evening light.  Perhaps not your standard landscape images...I like the simplicity of composition and the drama of the light.  Antelope Island is a place where one could shoot and not tire of.  If only it was closer to Rexburg.

I could only spend a little time here and plan on going back in the summer.  I was like a kid in a candy store at this find!
