Utah State Fair 2015

 Go with friends to the state fair. See the sights, ride the rides, eat carnival foods and fun.

 The classic Ferris wheel

 Moving around

 This fun ride is not for the faint of heart, look at the next picture! It is called SPEED!

 I can hear people screaming!

 On this one too!


The Zipper.

Bunch Of Yellow

I like the layers and complementary colors within this picture. I am glad someone has a better green thumb than I do. I used a large telephoto lens from the street to capture the flowers in a neighbors yard. They are still blooming with great colors. I should get back to them and get permission to get closer.

Great Heron

 Followed this bird around for a while, each time I went to take its photo it would fly off.

Posing for a photo.

Graceful but shy!

Old VW

While visiting the bird refuge at the North end of the state this little beauty pulled up for a visit too. The owners where from California and one of them was a camera/photo buff! We had a nice visit and chat, about the car mostly. I took a few photos and reflected on the VW Bug I once owned and have regretted letting go. Old car or new lens? It is a question I struggle to answer every time I see a VW.

Busy Bee II

Its a challenge to photograph a bee collecting nectar. The bee buzzing about, wind blowing the flower, auto focus in and out, its a wonder I got any pictures at all.

Young Man Fishing

Visiting Kaysville Ponds, I witnessed some young men having a good time fishing. They were using hot dog chunks for bait and reeling them in as fast as they could cast! The small fish brought big smiles to their faces! I was in awe! I never get that lucky fishing. Must be the hot dogs! What a great way to spend the summer, fishing with your buddies. Making memories that turn into B-I-G fish stories, that only get B-I-G-G-E-R the more they are told!!

Looking right me!

While hiking through the woods, I could hear the chatter of this little fellow. It took me a little while to spot it. Even with a good telephoto lens I still wanted to get closer. He or she was chattering like hens in a hen house! It was great fun to watch and observe this squirrel. Look at its dirty face.

Its amazing what you can see when you look down below your knees. I found these little fungi while on a hike near Snow Basin. I need to look down more often!
