Henry’s Fork at Chester (Chester Dam and River with Pelicans)

 

I’ve been visiting, and photographing, and fishing near Chester Dam for years (a post with pics from 2006 can be found here). Recently they installed a small hydro plant and a fish ladder. I suppose it’s OK. I miss the aesthetics of the old dam.

Teton Creek (A week at Scout Camp)

I had the privilege to spend a week at Treasure Mountain Scout camp with Ethan and several boys and leaders from our local troop. While there I took a few photographs of Teton Creek where it passes through Treasure Mountain.

Sagebrush and Sky (along Highway 33)

Last Summer I made a lot of sagebrush and sky photographs. I’m still making a few of them. Here is one from the other evening.

Fun Farm Bridge on the Henry’s Fork near Chester

I go to the fun farm area of the Henry’s Fork a lot. It’s great for fly-fishing, birding, and making photographs. It’s just a cool place. In the summer, I often see kids jumping off the bridge. I’ve often thought I should photograph it, but have always been too busy, distracted, shy or whatever to photograph it. The other night I made it a point to head up with the specific task of photographing bridge jumpers. I’m not sure which is my favorite, so I’m posting three of them here.

Southern Utah Excursion with Photography Students

I think we’ve taken students to Southern Utah as part of BYU-Idaho’s Art Travel studies class four times now. This one was as fun as any of them. We had good students, decent weather, and good light. Here are a few pics in chronological order (roughly):

Fish Creek Dam

My friend Brian and I visited Fish Creek Dam (near Carey, ID) earlier in the week. I hadn’t been before, but had seen photographs of the impressive structure and have been wanting to photograph for some time. It was pretty magnificent, and a bit overwhelming. I managed to make a couple of photographs I’m happy with, but might need to make another visit to explore it a bit more. Here are the best results:

Two Photographs of the Same Tree

These two photographs (both photographs are of the same tree) were taken shortly before and after sunset at one of my favorite local locations to make photographs, a quiet little spot along the Teton River near Sugar City. Both photographs are stitched from three separate images using a 24mm tilt shift lens (a pretty sweet tool).
