Just got back from 14 days in my second home, Utah. Great times with family, but I won’t bore you with photos of turkeys, martinis or family opening presents. Actually, most of the trip was spent snowboarding and toying around with my GoPros for some POV footage. Ended up with 40gigs of that to deal with. I took a day off from all that to try and get some nice landscapes. There’s a spot called Rocky Mouth Falls that I covered in a previous post just up the road from our house. It’s closed to the public in the winter, but that little chain-link fence wasn’t enough to keep me away. Climbed up to the waterfall, shot some photos, then climbed above the falls for some panoramas of the Oquirrh Mountains behind Salt Lake. I got kind of bored as the sun was setting, and the clouds had moved in to where it was going to set. I was 15 minutes into the walk down when the sky showed a lot of pink behind the mountains. Shit. Rookie mistake. I ran back up the mountain, not quite getting to my original spot, but enough to make a couple decent photos.
A good reminder to always stick it out ’til the end.
