Fog in Ashton

I used to despise winter. I would get anxious in the fall knowing that winter was coming soon. For some reason though, I’ve come to terms with it. The light is soft, the snow softens edges, and there are interesting birds to be found. One of my favorite winter locations is Ashton, ID. The few times I’ve been up there this winter, the fog has been pretty thick. Today was no exception.

I’m including a couple of images from today. I am a bit frustrated with the display of these really light images. The prints are a bit lovelier (take my word for it). Anyhow, I hope you enjoy.

Foggy Winter Scenes

When I woke up to thick fog I knew I had to get out and photograph. I did have quite bit to do at work though. I went out for a couple of hours this morning and had a good time making photographs near Sugar City and Teton. I then headed back to work and got most of my work done. I then drove out towards Ashton in the evening and continued. What a beautiful day. Here are a couple images:

Fun Farm Ice Dam

So, it’s been a pretty cold winter and much of the lower Henry’s Fork has been iced over. It’s been a bit warmer lately and the river was really breaking up this morning. The chunks of ice were forming a pretty nice ice dam near Fun Farm Bridge. Here’s the view looking downstream.
