Kanarra Creek

This has to be one of the most amazing places I've ever been. Thanks to a co-worker's recommendation, I took a trip to Kanarra, Utah (which you will most likely not be able to find on a map) and found this spectacular slot canyon. I really wish I had had a hood for my lens at the time and that I had waited another 20 minutes for the sun to rise a bit out of my picture. This is definitely a scene I will be revisiting with the sole purpose of retaking this photo.

Delicate Arch

What kind of Utahn would I be if I didn't have a photo of Delicate Arch? No doubt a lousy one, that's for sure.

Antelope Island

I rarely see photos of Antelope Island. There are only two possible reasons for this: 1. No one ever goes there. or 2. There's nothing worth photographing. After having been a few times now, I've come to realize that the latter must be true.
The other day I took a trip to the famed Alpine Loop looking to take some fall pictures. As I cruised along the windy road ascending the canyon I must have passed a dozen people bearing SLRs trying to capture the changing colors on the peaks around Mt. Timpanogos.
I have never seen anyone with a real camera at Antelope Island. I guess people go to photograph the popular things, but in my opinion some of the less popular things make the more unique and interesting photos.
