beacon of…

No hiking today, but I did take a rainy/snowy windshield tour of the northeastern part of Salt Lake City this morning.  I had never seen the light atop the capitol building, but there it is…a beacon of something or other.  I made this image from the paved loop of City Creek Canyon, just north and east of the Utah State Capitol.

  1. I really like the subtle colours here. They create a great sense of atmosphere.

    • Some of my favorite colors, Rachael….those rich, earthy browns and golds and fading greens.

    • Yes, this is our first bit down in the valley…there’s already a nice dusting on the mountains, too. 🙂

  4. The capitol lost in the mist… seems a proper metaphor… and a very lovely moody, misty shot. 😉

    • I like your mind, Gunta…right there with you. 😉 And I do like the moody and misty part of it, too…. 🙂

    love that beacon shining through the mist to the beauty of nature. SLC is a pretty city (although it’s been years since I’ve been there). I like this pairing of city / canyon.

    • The pairing of city/canyon…yes, this is a fine example of how close Nature is to us here, LB…one of the best things about the place, to my mind, anyway.

  6. Interesting to see the wild so close to the State capitol. You’d never see that here.

    • Probably can’t find it in most places, Allen…I wouldn’t think so, anyway…too much big city life around them.
