I've lost 35 pounds this past year, but now that school is back in session I am finding it difficult to get as much time to exercise. So, even though it was raining I got my camera gear, which I keep in a Lowepro Flipside 300 backpack, and went walking on the Jordan River Parkway in South Salt Lake. Most of the time the rain was okay, fairly gentle so I got my camera out and started shooting. I was going for some interesting colors or textures. Here are a couple of the images I made:
So as I was walking along the trail looking to the West I saw this trailer park with the clouds and the mountain in the background. The view wasn't so great but I thought about what I might be able to do with it in post processing. I tried a couple of things, but I ended up liking this moody one here.There were these plants along the walk. I don't know the genus and species, but they looked nice with the rain and the waterdroplets.Along the parkway there were a number of signs asking people to stay out of the wood because of re-vegitation. Actually I think they are trying to reduce the number of illicit trysts going on in the wooded areas.I loved the brilliant yellow color here contrasted against the grey environment.I loved using my 28-70mm 2.8 to get a nice bokeh here. The water droplets are cool to. The wind added a touch of blur to the photo and gives it a sense of movement.
