Kahana Bay

“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Utah anymore……..”


I recently visited Hawaii for a photo project, and had just enough time to squeeze in a panorama that I thought would be an interesting contrast to my last panorama of the Great Salt Lake. For more about where and what this is go to the text at the bottom of the panorama.

White Rock Bay

Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake is the setting for this panorama:



Antelope Island is really a unique spot, a desert island on a desert lake.  It has herds of  buffalo, and seagulls, an interesting combination!  This was my second “shot” at getting to this point for a panorama.  The first trip was cut short by lightening directly over the island, but it taught me I should bring plenty of mosquito repellent AND one of those funny bug-net hats to guard against gnats that pay no heed to bug repellant.  The text below the panorama tells more about this lake.

Thank You!


Snow Canyon

A recent trip to Snow Canyon, after April (and May) showers brought May flowers:

Snow Canyon is near Saint George, Utah, which can get quite hot in summer, but is very pleasant the rest of the year.

Have a Great Day!



Night Life on Utah Lake

Good Morning (or afternoon, or night, depending on your part of the world),

Just a short few minutes from where I live, I’ve been visiting a spot on Utah Lake to experiment with some night panoramas and I thought I’d share the results so far:



The very last rays of sun provide the blue tones, while the yellow/orange tones are from the city lights of Provo and surrounding towns.

Thank You!
