Rush Lake

It was a beautiful, winter morning and I had gone west from the Salt Lake Valley in hopes of finding some migrating Bald Eagles.  I had no luck with that part of the adventure, but I did find a sun-clad sky, snow-covered mountains, and a refreshing breeze moving through the valley that contained Rush Lake.  If you’re interested in such things, you can click here to read what Wikipedia has to offer about the lake.

  1. Beautiful Scott as always. Keep up the good work and keep your wonderful and awesome photos coming I love seeing them every day to see what you have shot for the day. I have actually seen this place (Lake) it is just as beautiful in real time as it is in photo time. Have a wonderful day my friend and I hope spring comes soon for you.

  2. I get that majestic western landscape feeling from this photo…and it looks like a few people are lucky enough to have cabins there.

    • Yes, there’s a feeling of wonderfulness when standing alongthe water’s edge, too, Lynn….the snow-covered mountains in the background, the calling of the Canada geese from out on the water, and the slight sound of the mild wind blowing through the grasses and reeds….all kinds of wonderfulness.

  3. What a fantastic shot. Back in my day there was a whole lot more lake, but then the mid 80s were flood years. I never actually stopped here during my hour long commute across the desert. So sorry you didn’t get to see the eagles. Seemed like there used to be literally dozens perched on the trees that could be seen from the road. Then again it seemed as though there more of them down low during the really thick inversions or fog. I can’t help but wonder if they’re gone these days, or just flying high during that lovely looking clear weather.

    • I’ve read that the water level does fluctuate greatly, depending on snow-melt, rainfall, etc….I just think it’s great that there’s water out there, period…it adds so much to a landscape. I had hoped to see some of the eagles for myself…might have to go north to do that someday. 🙂

  5. I’ve just discovered your blog and I must say: yours are some of the best pictures I’ve seen in a long time.
    Thank you for sharing them with us. But, more importantly, thank you for sharing with us your unique perspective on life because, sometimes, a picture speaks louder than words, (as Madam Vastra would say “lies are words, words words”).
