IN ONE SUNSET - On
a cool evening, in the late summer of 2000, I had
a strong desire to go take a picture of a Great
Salt Lake Sunset. I looked at the sky overhead and
it was clouded over. I looked to the clouds over
the Lake and it was clouded over also, but I had
this thing inside me saying go get a sunset shot
of the Lake. So, I went. Inside I felt that something
would come up. I picked a sight that I had to walk
to along the road to the Great Salt Lake Marina
and waited. It didn't look good. The clouds were
thick over Stansbury Island but southwest of the
Island I saw a patch of clear sky and it was headed
over Stansbury. I didn't know the exact position
of the sun for the cloud cover but I waited. Hoping
that that little patch of blue would be where the
sun would be as it touched the top of the Island.
As I waited, with my camera on its tripod, people
would pass in vehicles and give me the strangest
looks, as if to say; Hey fellow, do you really think
there's going to be a sunset?" I waited and
was able to get these three sunset shots that are
as different as can be for being the same sunset
and each of them. . . beautiful.
- In the late fall of 1999 I decided to take a trip
to Antelope Island to get some pictures of the buffalo
herd. I found the herd and was able to get some
interesting shots but still had a "hankering"
to find something also to photograph. I decided
to wait for the sunset and I wasn't disappointed,
as you can see from the shots that were taken.
