Fly-Over, Great Salt Lake shoreline

The Great Salt Lake seems to change each time I fly over. But, a nice display of shapes and colors.

And then there was Jupiter and 5 moons

Compared to the photo below, it looks to me like Jupiter has a 5th moon. (Tripod mounted, Canon T2i, Tamron 18-270 lens, zoomed to 270, ISO 400, f6.3, 2 second exposure). Taken 16 November 2011, from Utah, USA.

Strawberry Reservoir Milky Way

My wife and I took this shot of the Milky Way, looking south from Strawberry Reservoir, last summer. We were lucky enough to capture the "shooting star" in the lower left corner. I saw it come in over my left shoulder, but wasn't sure it was part of the picture until the exposure was complete. Taken with a Canon T2i, Tamron 18-270 lens @18 mm. Exposure was for about 30 secs, ISO 1600, f3.5.

Sunset Central

Utah is Sunset Central. Beautiful colors all year long.
