A Post About Photography Without Posting A Photo

Many of you who follow my blog are photographers of all levels and photography admirers.  I have a question that I recently asked myself and I wanted to open it up to others.  I’d love to hear your comments and I know many others will also love to hear the variety of responses.   In a small way, I hope this helps all of us visualize images before we make them:)

My question is “You’ve seen millions of images and I’m sure you have a favorite one.  Can you describe it without giving the location or a name?”

My answer to this question was this:  “My favorite image is from a place that has inspired millions of people throughout time. It is an image that captures a moment that is invisible to the naked eye. This image has allowed me to be in this place, to feel the air and to feel the pulse of the absolute stillness. It is a landscape as rugged as a saw blade yet inviting and full of welcome. There is no color and it leaves your mind open to interpret the scene as you imagine. I can see this place with my eyes closed because of this image and it is engrained in my mind.”

Thanks and I look forward to reading your comments:)

P.S.  A HUGE thank you to all who are recently following my blog after a previous post was Freshly Pressed!  Enjoy!

Uinta Mountains of Utah

Earlier this week I spent 3 days backpacking in the Uinta Mountains of northeast Utah.  Rain was the dominant weather feature and luckily it cleared out on the final day.  This image is of columbine wildflowers at 11,000 ft among a rock garden.  The sun was on the verge of shining through the lifting clouds and the air was dead calm.  The trip was so refreshing with the rain, solitude and exploring new landscapes.  I’m working on several images for the next post which I’ll share soon.

Have a great weekend and get out there to enjoy the last bit of summer:)  EE

Out Late

Rainbow Out of the Blue

 

Blue Rainbow

A few weeks ago a buddy and I went on a hike in the Uinta Mountains east of Park City.   The day started quite grey and it would only get cloudier.  Fast forward through a heavy thunderstorm and we came across this view while hiking out.  I almost couldn’t believe my eyes.

There was blue skies and no visible fog.  Just a rainbow floating over the lake.  There is probably an explanation for it but all I know is that I’ve never seen anything like this in all my time outside.   I’ll share some other images from this day soon since it was a beautiful day in the mountains.

Enjoy,

EE

 

The View

This image is from a few evenings ago overlooking Park City.  The clouds parted to the west at sunset leaving a display of reds, oranges and purples.   This is the view to the north from an area where I spend much time photographing and frequently, this distant landscape catches my eye.  Hope you enjoy!  EE

Hot Summer Nights

I haven’t forgotten about sharing photos here, I promise!  Summer is in full swing in Utah and this image is from 2 days ago.  I’ll share more soon as its been quite beautiful around here:)
