There are moments when watching a rain storm when blue sky appears, yet rain falls incessantly, and the Salt Lake appears as streaks of silver. You have to be quick to catch it. And what with fussing with settings on my camera, I missed the best of it. And of course, there's that lighting problem when shooting into the sun. Out of a couple dozen shots I snapped quickly this is the best I could do. This is looking west out of one of the tall narrow windows that are on either side of my fireplace on the west. I failed to capture the drama of Mother Nature's show, but I was pleased with the shot of the fish which ended up being the focus.
The fish was a gift from my best friend -- friends since the 3rd grade, over 50 years. We found these glass mobiles, made by a local artist, at an art fair at Red Butte Gardens last year, and my generous friend insisted that this would be my Christmas gift. This is one of those things you hang in your house not just as a lovely piece of art, but also as a reminder of a treasured friendship.
The place where I bought my camera offers free lessons on how to use your camera, and I think I'm finally ready to learn.
