Wanship and Beyond

Shack in WanshipThe magic of digital photography is that it takes more time to put labels on a picture than it does to take the picture. Anyway, on Monday and Tuesday of this week, I went on a flower hunting expedition into the Uintas. With the Macro Feature on my Sigma 28-90 lens, I am able to get internet quality images of most mountain flowers.

Wahship DamThis particular trip took me on a full tour of the Mirror Lake Loop. I did a trip to the Mirror Lake highway early in June. The road was still closed at Butterfly. Since it takes forever to add images, I thought I would pop up a blog post with images of Wanship and Rockport Reservoir.

Buffalo w. CalfUnfortunately, the zoom lens that came with my camera is on the fritz. Unless an animal is secured tidely in cage like my friend Mr. Buffalo, I was not able to get their images. Figuring out wildflowers and the names of towns is a big enough challenge for me. Anyway, I have this massive collection of photos to label. My basic idea is to do enough photos of a scenic area to give them a hint of the area's offerings. My aim is for about 8 to 20 images of each subject.
