Winter Wander & Clouds

January 10, 2014. It snows in Utah.  I went for a walk to use my new camera.  This is the wander I lost my lens cover on.

Drainage pipe. Half-covered by the chain-link fence. This is a stream during the summer.

I like how the log made a little cave in the snow.

I like the pattern the branches and leaves make in the snow.

Winter selfie. I’d lost my lens cover by this point, but somehow didn’t notice when I took this picture.

Red berries and a fake well. What a pretty composition.

After that last picture I realized I’d lost my lens cover and spent an hour tromping back and forth over my tracks to find it.  Which I did.  Phew.

 

Now these next pictures come from Jan. 27 as my husband drove us down to Provo in the morning for work and school.  I liked how the smoggy atmosphere was messing with the light.

So much atmospheric perspective. Thank you pollution.  (bleargh.)

More haze.

A big sky full of little clouds.

Glowing texture in the sky!

A river bed in the sky.

And then on the other side of the valley, we have the little flat, smudge tool clouds. Worn-out circles of moisture.

And the factory belches.
