Light in the distance

Antelope Island as dusk arrives. When I arrived in Utah over six years ago I fell in love with this place, especially in the winter months. My wife and I had hiked a new trail close to the ranch but ran out of time so had to turn back. As we made our way back to the causeway, I looked over to be amazed once again at the raw beauty this place possesses, light in the distance.

This is a wonderful image. I was really drawn into the frame and just wandered....

Beautifully lit, wonderful atmosphere - well done!

Would also consider this cropped to a 3:1 - might also make a really nice panorama!

Thanks Peter! I probably should but I found the foreground so interesting I didn't have the heart to cut it if I'm being honest!

Mark, I agree with what you said about the foreground being interesting in this shot, it draws the eye effortlessly to the island, but I also think that a panoramic crop might suit this shot too. I wish I had taken this shot.

Thanks Darin! I'm blessed to be where I am. Utah is one of the most scenic, beautiful, iconic states in the union. I moved here from Germany 6 years ago with the intention of going back after 2 years yet, here I am. Well worth a trip if you have never been. Southern Utah gets a lot of the attention because of the parks but northern Utah is gorgeous as well.

Utah is gorgeous. One of my favorite sections of the state is the area where I-70 and I-15 connect. The stretch from there to St. George, is lovely.
