    This is very nicely done. This comes from an area of Utah that I have somewhat neglected for a while. Thanks for sharing this.

    Thanks for the compliment. This is my favorite photo of hundreds I’ve taken on seven trips to Utah.

    Love the contrast of the strikingly pristine mountains viewed thru the darker foreground; creates a compelling feeling for me, something akin to the feeling of hope; thanks Neal.

  • Thanks for the boost, Miles.
