Whenever we get to Utah, it’s to get work done for the art shows. Which is great, but not very adventurous, and I can get a little stir crazy. Sunday, was that day.
So, we all got in the truck and headed south for a day trip. We really didn’t have a destination in mind, but we ended up on the western edge of the San Rafael Swell. We have spent a lot of time in this general area in the past, and we remembered a short hike we did that went to a great petroglyph panel.
And desert, that was the best part.
On the drive down we saw more hawks than I have ever seen. It was like the great hawk show, but the only critters we saw on our hike were lizards.
The Dogwood 52 this week is triptych, or diptych. Or in other words, a series of photos that tell a story. So this weeks From Clicking to Creating I am going to show you how to create a triptych image in photoshop.
Here is my photo for this weeks prompt. The lamb jumping was the perfect subject.
Bighorn Sheep in Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada
This post has a lot of photos, but I took so many of the bighorn sheep in the valley of fire, and I wanted to share.
In my last post on Valley of Fire, I mentioned we had hiked the fire wave trail in the evening and saw a couple bighorn sheep. Later that night we saw some way high up on the bluff in that same general area. I wasn’t super happy with my photos of fire wave I took that night, and wanted to go back in the early morning. We were on the trail just after sunrise, and saw a group of sheep coming down off the high bluff. The male was out in front, and his two females and their babies were following him down.
We were the only people out this early in the morning, so they were aware of us, but not super concerned.
