Portfolio Post - Art

This portfolio was the hardest to name.  I didn't want to call it "Landscapes" because it isn't just that.  I didn't want to call it "Scenic" because I think that is lame.  "Nature" didn't seem to cut it either.  With input and help from others, I finally decided on "Art."  This is the space to showcase my photos that have more of a fine art feel to them - landscapes, sunsets, sunrises, animals, plants, etc.  This is a portfolio I hope to expand on a bunch over the next several months.

I don't know what kind of plant this is, but I think it looks cool.

I was headed out to attend my little brother's baseball game and saw this single bird on the wires outside my back door.  I had been thinking about a shot like this for a while and recognized it when I saw it.

Sundial Peak sits at the top of the Mill B South drainage between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons.  This day we ended up skiing some of the terrain you can see in the right third of the photo, but I did scope a line off the top that looks pretty awesome.  We will have to get back there when the time is right.

Taken from the North Summit of Mt. Olympus looking down on the Salt Lake Valley just 20 minutes or so before I cut my head open skiing down it.

I don't think I ever saw the television show, "Green Acres," but I do know the theme song from that part in the Pauly Shore movie, "Son-in-Law," where he sings it.  Embarrassing, I know.

Snow can be quite the fascinating subject.

My wife and I took a road trip up to the Pacific Northwest this past summer.  We stopped in Vancouver, BC and shot this flower in the park.

Springtime is a perfect time to shoot in farm towns as there is plenty of adorableness to go around (yes, that was meant to be over-the-top cheesy).

These are beautiful pics. i like the captions that you have used to describe the photo. How about calling this collection as "Travel Photography"? since in each pic you have travel to somewhere to get a shot.
