Bounteous Dusk

Tonight I had finished dinner and cleaning up the kitchen and saw that there was still daylight out. On top of that, Ann was heading up to do homework. So I made, what turned out to be a terrific decision, to grab my gear and head out to the Squaw Peak road and try to grab some last light pix.

This empty lot is part of the way up the Squaw Peak road. A few others has the same idea as did I.

The photo above was actually the last in the series of photos shooting directly into the canyon. The others were taken moments earlier off the side of the mountain road. I felt like I had to stop on the side of the road to capture the unique cloud formation that had changed once I reached the lot shown in the above photo.

I love the above photo because it tells a story. I love the photos below because I think they are beautiful. I am including several different versions below.

This was the first one I took
This was photo #2
The last. Ann says she can see a face in the clouds. Do you see it?

As I was entering into the canyon, I saw the photo below. The problem was that the only way to get it was to stop in the middle of the highway on ramp. I quickly glanced into my rear view mirror and saw that there was not a single car in sight. That is not typical. I stopped in the middle of the road and rolled down my window and captured this image. The mountain in the background is Mount Timpanogos.

The entrance to the canyon was gorgeous tonight

As soon as I left my house to go out, I was immediately seeing photos. The one below of the tree in full blossom was taken about 1 mile from house. The second photo below was taken on a road not too far away.

The road was beautiful. I was hoping that both sides of the street would be blossoming. I do like the cloud covered Big Baldy peak in the background.

This tree on a the corner is simply beautiful
A gorgeous neighborhood street that looks like it leads to Big Baldy in the background

Speaking of Big Baldy, the photo below shows the peak a few moments later from a different location. The clouds were gently rolling over the top of the peak. It was fun to watch.

Tonight was a gold mine of photos. I left the house not expecting much other than a nice drive and a quiet observance of the sunset. It turns out I didn’t even pay attention to the sunset because I was so distracted by the photos shown above.

I love nights like this!
