Late Post

I tried to post this on Friday, but I couldn’t get it to work, so here’s it is, a little late.

After working with some students on their projects in the photo lab on Friday I went out to do a little research for my father-in-law. He’s coming up next weekend and I feel obligated to find him some good fishing spots. I had a good time, the weather was nice (calm winds and slightly overcast), blue-winged olives and midges were coming off, fish were rising regularly, and I even managed to catch a few. The sunset was beautiful, however I fished right through it (fly-fishing is turning me into a less productive photographer I fear). Anyway, I made a few photographs after the sun had set.

  1. yea! first comment! j/k

    Nice photos Darren. On my way home from work tonite The sunset looked a little bit like that on the Provo River just north of Heber. That section of the river reminds me a lot of the sloughs out west of Rexburg…I miss those. I loved photographing them. But I think the Provo may be a good “substitute.”

  2. Aah…The Prodigal son has returned to photography…Like I’m one to talk.

  3. Yay! Darren updated his blog!


  4. I love every one of those photos! If I had to choose a favorite, I’d pick the moon reflection on the water.

  5. phew! i was worried you had disappeared.

  6. I’m partial to the Ashton Dock photo. Glad for the update!

  7. Obligated….Yeah I bet!

  8. Fishing and photography are hard to reconcile. It seems like the best photos are made during the time fish are most active. What a choice. Those fish love good light as much as photographers!

  9. I’m glad you’re so willing to make such sacrifices for your father-in-law. I’m sure Susan is glad.

  10. Darren you really should open up a studio.

  11. I would willingly spend millions if Darren opened a studio!!!
