Trees near Ditches and Roads – Another Installment

A few more Trees near Ditches and Roads from the last few days. These were all made in the Upper Snake River Valley. A collection of these made over the last few years can be found at my website: http://www.darrenclarkphoto.com/trees-near-roads–ditches.html

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.

Sagebrush Prairies As Far As The Eye Can Reach (Wilford Woodruff Quote)

“I can see these great sagebrush prairies, as far as the eye can reach” – Wilford Woodruff 1884

The above quote is from Wilford Woodruff, who was describing the landscape surrounding Rexburg in the late 19th century. It is actually part of a larger prophecy which reads as follows:

“I promise you that the climate will be moderated for your good. I can see these great sagebrush prairies, as far as the eye can reach, turned into fertile fields. I bless the land that it shall yield forth in its strength. Flowers and trees and fine homes shall grace this valley from one end to the other. Schools and colleges of higher learning shall be built to serve you that you may learn the mysteries of God’s great universe. I see churches and meetinghouses dotting the landscape, where the God of Israel may be worshipped in spirit and in truth. Yes, and as I look into the future of this great valley I can see temples — I can see beautiful temples erected to the name of the living God.” Wilford Woodruff 1884

It seems the prophecy is coming true. I like the sagebrush prairies though. I guess I hope that not all of the sagebrush prairies of the upper snake river valley are turned into fertile fields.

I’ve been turning my attention to these sagebrush prairies of the upper snake river valley this summer. Here are some efforts thus far:

Coffee Pot Rapids

Coffee Pot Rapids is a turbulent section of the Henry’s Fork between Mack’s Inn and Island Park Reservoir. It’s about as lovely as it gets.

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.

Willow and Ditch

This is my favorite type of subject matter to photograph. It’s merely an ordinary willow tree in a field with a ditch around it.
