photoblog image Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City

I have posted nothing but pictures from India since January so it is probably time for a change. In early March I took a trip to Salt Lake City for a conference and had time to get a few pictures taken. I took this one from the plane as I was landing at the Salt Lake City airport. You can see the Salt Lake here and one of the mountain ranges that surround the valley - I believe it was the Wasatch Range.

Very nicely captured, Charles. The Wasatch mountains have always been shockingly beautiful to me. Wonderful bit of nature to catch the reflection of the clouds in the lake.

Excellent panorama construit sur la profondeur des successions des plans! Le réflexions du ciel dans l'eau ajoutent leur propre touche!
Bonne journée lumineuse!
what a wonderful image! Very impressive - most of my plane shots feature more of the reflected interior of the plane than any beauty outside!

I think you're right. I used to go ski-ing each year in the mounatins; loved it and Salt Lake City.
Excellent shot Charles but it is the reflection that really does it for me.

Wow! Is the lake frozen over, or is that just the reflection of the sky/clouds?! H.
Charles Dastodd: it actually was not frozen over at the time I was there. the weather was fantastic down in the valley and quite warm, although they got a bunch of snow the day I left and I almost didn't make it out!

I was beginning to think that you lived in India! This is a cool pic with a painterly quality to it.
Charles Dastodd: I wish! no, i was just there for a couple week over the end of December through beginning of January. smile
A beautiful photography, great scenery. Congratulations.
