I’ve always loved photography but couldn’t afford to play with it until digital came along. Now it’s my favorite thing to do…my goal with the camera is to bring beauty and joy to the viewer, with the hope that the wonder of God’s creation shines through these images…and of course play with a few images that are just plain fun:)

I live in Vernal, Utah, surrounded by beautiful scenery….

    Wonderfully composed and love all the lines, textures and color of the rocks! The soft cloudy sky adds a contrast in color and texture to the rocks. Lovely work Kim! : )

  • Thank you!

    So much visual interest in the foreground and background. Love the many layers of color.

  • That’s one of the fun things about this place…wonderful color patterns in the rocks. I’m working on “tighter compositions”…:)

    Please share/post this image with the Group One Tree at a Time

  • I thought about it, but I thought the lone tree needed to be the focus of the image…I guess not, as long as there is only one tree in it…
