stormy weather

CedarValley-4824Near Cedar Valley Utah…. with an approaching storm…

Seasons are like life. Some seasons are better than others. Some have more sun and rainbows. Others have storms and tornadoes. Some have both. You have to accept that, and bring colour and light to the season you’re in as best you can, and always look forward to the next season.

  1. I like the thin line of colored clouds near the left horizon beneath the steel gray of the rest of the sky. And excellent words by Cathy Lamb, too…fitting.


    • Thank you…. in case you’re interested, I think this was at the intersection of 73 and the Pony Express Trail Rd heading out toward Faust… there’s all kinds of history leaving traces all over that valley or area.


      • Very welcome…and I think I might have come across that particular intersection…isn’t that the Pony Express Trail Rd that heads down toward the west side of Eagle Mountain? Sounds familiar…except for the Faust part, anyway…..


        • The Pony XP Trail runs clear through Cedar Valley and heads out across the Jordan River. Hubby and a friend researched all the Stations along the route… one was where Eagle Mountain now sits, another was in the little town of Fairfield and another (west of Fairfield) was Rush Valley (now known as Faust- The image above was taken where the dirt road to Faust (there’s a sign there) takes off from 73 just west of Fairfield and pretty much due south of Tooele.


    • Oh, I wish I had the talent to paint like that. Feel free to use any of the quotes anytime. I have no personal claim to them, other than sheer enjoyment or agreement. Though I wasn’t altogether sure about that last phrase… my thought is more of a “love the one you’re with” notion. I try to work on that more than looking forward to the next… life’s too short. 😉


    • Storms out on the high desert are way cool… what I especially remember were the summer squalls with sheet lightning streaking out across the valley.


    • Several things…. oddly enough I rarely got rained on in the midst of all these spectacular cloudy, ominous looking skies and living in Oregon these days, a bit of rain doesn’t worry me much… couldn’t hardly miss out on all these glorious looking pictures mother nature was painting for me. 🙂 I’ll take clouds and rain over blazing sun and heat any day.


    • Thank you for the kind words. Someday I’ll upgrade to the lenses you suggested and we’ll see what happens…. 😉 Luckily I’ve been given the gift of knowing when to click, I believe that might be something you can’t buy.
