Three versions of the same grove

Highway 12 in the middle of Utah is a pretty good road to drive down. And when you do, plan in stopping now and again to take some photographs.





Turn right at Vivian Park. The road gets curvy and stops at the trail head to Big Springs. We wanted to walk in the woods one more time before the snow sets in. I don’t know how many of these good days we have left.

Cross the creek, then just walk. The ground is covered in oak tree leaves but the aspen trees are still hanging on and this is why you should go.

There’s a meadow there, lined with aspen. Their color is so bright you just might think it was painted on. And you can stand there, looking up at those trees, the wind comes through every now and again, and then you think to yourself, no matter what I have to do when I go home, EVERYTHING is going to be all right.

How to shoot a bear

I’ve been in Idaho since Sunday. I’m photographing a wedding in Rexburg in a couple days, but in the mean time, we’ve been in Island Park and Yellowstone. They tell you to keep at least 100 yards away from a bear, but some of those photographers apparently know better than the silly rangers and got right up close. Look how cute that bear is. It’s not going to maul anyone.

And that’s how you shoot a bear.


Take a camera with you

It’s always good to carry your camera with you. That way, when you show up and your friends haven’t arrived yet, you can spend your time making pictures. And that’s just what happened here. This photograph was made a few days ago while I was waiting for my friends. Pretty good way to pass the time, if you ask me.
