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.
A little black-capped chickadee in a tree.
Drainage pipe. Half-covered by the chain-link fence. This is a stream during the summer.
A bend in the dry stream bed.
Leaf in snow.
The Provo River.
Paper wasp nest!
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.)
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.
