"Two Views of Tibble Fork Reservoir"

The Tibble Fork Reservoir is a very popular spot for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities no matter what the weather or season. The first shot here is a group of hikers and their pooch making their way along the reservoir into the miles of trails that lead into the Wasatch Range. The second is looking across the snowdrifts to Mt. Timpanogos. The road leading here is part of the Alpine Loop, a very popular 17 mile drive during the color season. This time of year though the road ends at the reservoir but you can continue on foot, skies, snowmobile or snowshoes as far as you'd like into the surrounding mountain range.

Two nice images peter, and good to be able to guage the relative size of things.
#2 looks quite familiar, have you posted something near to there before?

Lovely snow textures.

Hi Derek

This is from the other end of the parking lot and lower level than a photo I posted a couple weeks ago. The other posting showed both the reservoir and Mt. Timpanogos. We've had quite a Winter here with lots of snow so I went back to see how the view was after a heavy snowstorm. You can see people in the second shot on the bottom left. There's a steep slope there that kids use to sled down.

Peter

Both are very nice. I will say the human element in the first one makes it my favorite.

Thanks Diane

The mountains around here are pretty impressive. I spent 2 years in California driving around the Sierra Nevada but the Rockies are even more spectacular.

Thanks JRP

No argument from me about Utah...one of the most scenic places I've had the good fortune to see in detail. Every direction has an incredible view. The state has done a great job in keeping them accessible to the public and those of us who like to document the landscape. I've really enjoyed my time here.

cheers
Peter

Love both of these. I think the foreground snow detail in the second really complements the rest of the photo...great balance.

Thanks Don

They've had the coldest, snowiest winter in nearly a decade in this region so lots of good winter scenery to photograph. The skies break open every once in a while and the light here is just incredible during the winter. This is on the top of my list of favorite places I've lived.

Peter

Hi Peter,

The second one is fantastic! The composition is perfect as the position of the valley (where the two mountains meet) and the main topic of this photo (the mountain) bring our eye into the same direction. This creates depth in the photo.

The color of the snow, the details in the trees and in the mountain are just right. The clouds add more impact (a totally blue sky would have almost ruined the photo).

Great photo!

Thanks Yvan

This has been one of my favorite places to visit from Fall thru Winter. You can't beat the view and it's an easy drive up from the city. All the snow this winter has provided some really beautiful scenery for us Nikon photographers. And I agree about the clouds....they make a lot of shots really pop. Appreciate the nice comments.

Peter
