Someone had to dress up nicely...might as well be this tree. The yard around this tree is basically a junk yard. It is right off an overpass and I tried to get everything junky out of the picture to show it's beauty. Now I wish I had shown more of it. I think it would have been a better photo. I could have created a better contrast. What humans do and what nature does are so different sometimes. Too bad, isn't it?! This was an amazing morning.
Mistake at the Lake
The Perfect Tree
I have driven by this site thousands of times. The tree there in the center in the distance is what I call the perfect tree. In any season it seems, it holds a shape of grace that you see drawn in children's books. So symetrical and gentle. I have always wanted to take a nap under it on a Spring day. Mostly, cattle sleep there.
Hole in the Wall
This picture shows a little more about what kind of photographer I am. I have a great eye at times, but not the best technique. Well, I really have little technical skill. Anyway, I left a small part of it blurry. But I still love this photo. It demonstrates amazing beauty in natrue's patterns. I found this bark on a weathered log in the desert within Arches National Park. It was hiding in the shadow of one of the arches. Funny, cause I bet no one else saw it. I don't even have a picture of the arch.
Bare in the Fog
If you had been with me when I took this, you would soon lose sight of everything. This was part of a fantastic Utah sunset near Utah Lake. The sun and fog converged and flirted for about 20 minutes, then it was dark and very foggy. It was really quite amazing how thick this fog was. You can barely see the barbed wire fence in front of me here. It was only about 10-15 feet away, if I remember right. Crazy stuff.
Sun in Fog
Well, it's hard to get more perfect than this rose. If only you could have smelled it. I love to garden and grew this rose from an overgrown rose bush in the yard. I was living in an apartment at the time. When I moved in, I proceeded to prune and nurture the roses. The result...well, see for yourself. There lots others just like it.
