Landscape Photography Class

I love community education.  Take a cheap class, have an excuse to get out of the house.  So my friend Wendy and I signed up together.  I didn't learn much and I realized landscape isn't my thing.  After the two classroom sessions we did two field sessions.  This is why I was there. When else would I say "Brian, I'm driving up into the mountains to take pictures, you've got the kids for a few hours."  Once we got there I realized I was more amazed by the beauty of the small things up close rather than the giant mountains. Thanks to the season it was a real adventure.

First was Little Cottonwood Canyon last week with snow up around my calves.

This past Saturday we went to Bridal Veil Falls in Provo Canyon.  The water flowing under the ice below my feet was my favorite thing.  I loved finding clear patches of ice where the flowing water was visible. Luckily I didn't fall through.  Although the teacher thought it was a good idea to have us take a trail up close to the falls. It proved too difficult and on our way down a lady behind me fell and slipped, and if it wasn't for a couple of leafless bushes to grab onto she would've slipped down the steep mountain to the riverbed.  The last part of the trail proved too steep for all of us and we all just sad down rode the mountain down.
