After a long streak of cloudless days last fall, a beautiful glowing sunset graced the Salt Lake Valley. Since I had been watching the weather for weeks, waiting for clouds to come, I was in position on the Bonneville Shoreline trail to capture it.

I didn’t have a whole lot going on in 2020, but in July I was lucky enough to get a permit to go to Coyote Buttes on the Utah and Arizona border. I had been before, but it’s always been a dream of mine to go back and get a shot with water in the bowl area. In an unlucky year, luck came through again for this trip and I got the shot I had waited 8 years for since I first found out about this special area. While I waited for the sun to get in the right spot, I searched for interesting compositions in the delicate and beautiful sandstone.
After an incredibly dry winter, it was so refreshing to finally get some snow in mid January. This storm brought in some fog, which is pretty rare for Salt Lake City. I hiked the Bonneville Shoreline Trail to capture some portraits of these stark trees in the conditions that I had been waiting nearly 2 years for. I don’t know what species they are, but they remind me of bristlecone pines: growing roots in the harshest conditions on the steepest slopes, and thriving to grow into beautiful shapes.
