A few more shots of that building

A reader named Kathy asked for more shots of this abandoned building I found in the Wasatch National Park, so here are three more, non-HDR versions of the shot. I really loved the whole setting of this thing…the cliffs behind it was just fantastic.

This is just a standard black and white of the building. After looking at these shots yesterday, it makes me want to go back and sneak a little closer!

This is a two-shot “panoramic” stitch in Photoshop. I added quotes because to me a panoramic means wide, but this scene was so TALL, I had to use two shots to capture the vertical nature of the building and the cliffs behind it.

This is one of the two shots I used for the above panoramic.

Dusk over the Wasatch National Park (HDR)

This is an HDR photo of the Wasatch National Park at sunset. I had been sitting on the side of this mountain watching the sun go down, watching a little weather blow through Salt Lake City…and just waited to see how the sun would light up these mountains.

The sky proved fairly awesome with the clouds and some color, but a couple of airplanes decided to cross overhead at the same time, which really gave it a cool look.

A tour of Wasatch, Utah: Part 3

Part 3 of my little series of photos of the Wasatch National Park east of Salt Lake City. I visited there last week for work and got a chance to escape and explore the mountains a bit. Needless to say, I loved the snow and the trees and the roads…such a great time.

A tour of Wasatch, Utah: Part 2

The second part of my series of photos taken in the Wasatch National Park just east of Salt Lake City, Utah. Such an amazing drive, temperatures dropped into the teens, it was snowing and the views were awesome.

I loved the little bush/tree on top of this mini-peak.

Hope this guy doesn’t have to go anywhere soon.

Great tree overlooking a little valley.

A balancing act.

Roads and roads…and I still have a few more road shots.

A tour of Wasatch, Utah: Part 1

Wasatch National Park is just east of Salt Lake City and essentially is nothing but high, snowy mountains and low creeks where the valleys are. I was able to get away from work a little early yesterday and had a good amount of time to explore. I took waaaay too many photos, so this is just the first entry in a little series I’ll be doing.

This was shot from a cemetery in Dell’s Dimple as I approached the Wasatch area. I loved the clouds and the big tree on the left.

Green, brown…interesting mixtures.

I took many, many shots from the road…this is one with falling snow and swirls of it sweeping across the roadway.

See, more roads! Powerlines suck usually, but I didn’t mind these.

These Aspen trees are without leaves and really looking amazing against these hills. Would love to see them in the summer!
