photoblog image Wasatch Mountains

Wasatch Mountains

Another shot of the Wasatch Range, looking north from the Capitol Building in Salt Lake City, Utah. I took this in early March. The mountains sort of surround the valley, creating a bowl with the Salt Lake to the open end of the bowl. These mountains have some great skiing!

It looks so... exotic to me! Reminds me of the Bolivian highlands.
The snow covered mountain peaks and cloud filled sky are so breathtaking and picturesque. Along with the fascinating architecture creates a stunning composition.

amazing blues in the sky and mountains, and the village looks almost miniature, very cool shot!!
Charles Dastodd: it does sort of look like a village here - but i took this actually in the middle of Salt Lake City which has a metro area of over a million people. however, from where I took this you cannot see the skyline or the density smile

That's a great panoramic, Charles! If you hadn't left those flags in the image, along with your text, I would have been hard-pressed to tell you where this was...and certainly not in America!
Charles Dastodd: yeah, definitely looks like it should be in europe or somewhere else smile
That is a very cool landscape. I love the composition with all that sky.

Nicely done Charles: is all of this Mormon land?
Charles Dastodd: Well, not quite all of it smile i think a bunch of the mountains there are state park, and I took this from the State Capitol building, so officially, I was on state land...
Absolument magnifique, cette chaîne de montagnes est extraordinaire !

Joli panorama. Bonne journée

I would have liked it when you captured more of the lower part, a bit too much sky for me this way
Charles Dastodd: I agree, I would have liked more of the landscape in front of me as well. unfortunately, it was just a big brown grass lawn and a road that rather ruined the shot so I had to cut them out.
