Early morning light.

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

The night before this shoot, Caroline Gleich and I decided that we wanted to get some Stand Up Paddle shots on the Great Salt Lake. The next morning I woke at 5:20am and looked at the skies. The skies didn’t look too promising, but we decided to go for it anyways. ¬†We arrived at the lake at 6:00am, and here are the results.

This photo was taken 15 minutes after the sunrise. The sky was very moody and gave us great contrast. Notice the mountains in the background aren’t lit.

Composition is always hard when you are working with an animal, but Stoli hit the spot on this one. Throwing rocks for him to chase helps :)

The morning light giving Caroline’s face a nice warm tone.

The Great Salt Lake is Utah’s unloved ocean. On this early spring morning it smelled great and there were no brine flies. I’ve been in Utah for 20 years and finally got to appreciate its beauty.
