Utah Landscapes 2 “Lake” - Antelope Island, UT
iPhone 4, Camera+
The Great Salt Lake is a bizarre ecosystem. One so different from the oceans, rivers and lakes of my youth. Over Thanksgiving we went to explore Antelope Island, a park set aside for wildlife and populated with Bison, Antelope and other wild creatures. We saw a lone Bison on the road, it seemed unperturbed by our presence and allowed us to drive slowly by and take photos.
This shot is taken from a high point on the island looking West. The Wasatch Mountains can be seen in the distance across the marsh of the island and the lake. On the right side of the image you can see the beginnings of the smog/inversion layer that often collects around Salt Lake City on high pressure days. We need better air quality laws here but the state and local government seem to think otherwise.
I offer this image as a print as well. My younger brother and his wife will have one hanging on their wall shortly.
