Wintery Wasatch Mountains

This is the south-facing ridge of the mountains that separate Big Cottonwood Canyon from Millcreek Canyon…as it appears when one is hiking Mill B South, the trail that leads to The Sister Lakes….  This is what you see when you turn around to check your back-trail….

    • It is something I enjoy very much, Shimon. It’s nice to be able to share their beauty here….

  3. I wonder how long it takes to climb to the top.

    • I’m not aware of any established trails over there, Allen, but I would imagine that it could be done…and would probably take a good bit of time.

  4. As much as I’m anxious for spring right now (and am tired of the snow), this is just so beautiful. Very majestic!

    • Thank you, Susan…and yes, very majestic.

  7. I like the way you have processed this – there’s a bleak, cold, grittyness to this – it conveys exactly the right feeling. Well done Scott.

    • Thank you very much, Andy.

  8. Here’s a good example of how you don’t have to have a nice blue sky to get a great photo. Those textures! It looks simple, but I know it’s not easy at all to capture an image lie this. It’s so well done (not unusual for you!)

    • This is a classic winter sky for me…makes a pleasant backdrop for the mountains like this. Thank you for your nice words, Lynn. 🙂

    • Thanks, Terry. 🙂

  12. Amazing layers and texture in those mountains. The snow really emphasizes the features. And of course, being a rock lover myself, I find this incredibly beautiful.

    March 9, 2013 at 9:12 am

    • Yes, Karen, the snow really brings-out the layers and textures of the mountains…and I’m glad you find this beautiful…kindred spirit. 🙂

  13. “This is what you see when you turn around to check your back-trail….” So often when I am out shooting, I get the best photos when I turn around to look at where I just was. It is amazing to me how different it can look. So many people only focus on what is in front of them. It is so important to look up, down, sideways and behind. Great shot!

    • Yes, Laura, it helps very much to be present and aware out there, not only as hikers, but as photographers, too. There is so much to see…if and when we will slow down and look in all of those different directions. I’m glad you enjoyed the shot…thank you.
