Where is this river? (Come home soon my lovelies)

Where is this river…? Well…it is The river that flows from Utah Lake, down by Provo and Orem, and up into the Salt Lake Valley, emptying in The Great Salt Lake…it’s just over 50 miles in length and has a bit of history attached to it…as you can read in this link from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordan_River_(Utah) . Basically, it runs smack-dab right through the middle of the valley from one end to the other…there is a beautiful walkway that follows it for much of its length and has many beautiful bridges to allow access from either side along the way.

It looks so narrow in one shot. When I read Jordan River and saw how narrow it was I immediately thought of the river Jordan in Jordan. Then of course I thought how the heck did those birds fly all that way and why wasn’t it spread all over the news 🙂
It makes sense now given your location. I am in Montreal and know our Canada Geese fly the east coast as do much of our human population that we have dubbed the ‘snow birds’. Thanks for your extensive answer! Have a great weekend

Love that first shot, Scott. How dreamlike!

Thanks, Gary…it was a beautiful morning to be out with a camera. 🙂
Ahhhh, splendid. The first shot is so painterly. A very nice composition, too.

Thank you, Melanie…very nice words. 🙂

dreamy…so THAT’S the Jordan River…it all makes sense now 🙂

Yes, as opposed to the River Jordan, which is its namesake….

Thanks, Adrian. 🙂

Another gorgeous misty shot. I’m rather surprised you found a spot along the Jordan that wasn’t all built up… 😉

Thank you, Gunta…and this particular location is just a tad north of the southwestern curve of the I-215 belt-loop (if that was here in your day) and next to a bit of a park…but is still in a largely undeveloped stretch that does not have the Jordan River Walkway immediately next to it. The second shot is cropped as low as it is because I couldn’t achieve a good enough angle of the river without also capturing a bit of neighborhood parking in it…without wading into the rather chilly river and disturbing the resident duck population, that is…. 😉

I love a good foggy image! Beautiful!

Me, too…thank you, Susan. 🙂

Love the misty appearance in that first shot – very dreamy and soft.

Thank you, Victoria.
The water looks like it was a lot warmer than the air. The geese were probably loving it.

I know the air was damn cold that morning and can only imagine that the water was, too…but yes, there must have been a significant enough difference to have allowed for all of the fog and mist…

I love the artistic touch you have given your photos, very enjoyable.
March 21, 2013 at 10:18 pm
You’re very kind, Charlie…thank you. 🙂
That looks like a great place for them!
March 22, 2013 at 10:16 pm
I thought it was an ideal location for them…greatly enjoyed them not flying away at my approach, too!

Stunning series. Wish I was there..

Two excellent photos. The panomaric is breathtaking !

How I love these, Scott. The first image is hauntingly beautiful.
