Ibex – One Dry Lakebed

We spent Saturday night at the Ibex Crag in western Utah.  The main reason for going was my friend’s 30th birthday and to build a bonfire, but we also did some climbing and enjoyed the wild scenery.  I did my best to get sunset and sunrise photos given the unique surroundings.  The morning was pretty tough since I didn’t have an alarm, but at the last second I popped out of bed, and got into position about 45 seconds before the sun came up.  I shot mostly film, as my rule these days is film for sunrises, sunsets, and anything with a lot of color.  I did want to get a few digital images for a quick post, and to use my fish-eye lens.  I really enjoy using it on my digital.  It’s not as crazy of a wide angle as it is on my film body, but still gives you that fish-eye, really wide angle look (just a bit more in control).  This image was taken probably 15 minutes after sunrise, looking south across the dry lake bed.

  1. You have nice blog here, all the pics are breathtaking!

  2. I really like this picture Nate – the colors and textures all blend so perfectly together.

  3. Thanks guys. I’m excited to get my roll of film back. I think those images will be awsome. The texture of the foreground, and how it seems to go off forever, is really nice,especially with the highlights from the sun.

  4. You are right about the texture in the fg Nate, It really makes the image and adds wonderful depth to your shot, well done.
