Home on the Range


Limited Edition of 50 Museum Grade, Fine Art Prints.

My wife and I spent Saturday afternoon November 28,2020 enjoying a hike on Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake. It really was more about just getting out and enjoying the outdoors than it was about photographing but you know me, I just can't resist taking my gear. We went in about 2 miles on White Rock Loop trail just enjoying stretching our legs. The light starting getting really good on the way back to the car and at one point I stepped off the trail and walked to the edge of the hill to take in the view. I saw some horse riders making their way across the prairie towards the trail and I knew I had to capture it! I was holding the camera by hand so I quickly checked my exposure to make sure the image would be sharp and got photographs as they crossed the spot. Surprisingly this, my first shot is the best, I almost missed this opportunity! I love the long shadows and late evening light making this a photograph I am really proud of. Check out my blog post of the adventure and the link to the video!

Shown as a 30x45 inch print in the Durango frame.

This was a wonderful day to stretch our legs and just enjoying being outside and I really didn't expect to get any good photographs but you know me, I'm always on the lookout for a great shot! I captured this photograph when I walked to the edge of the hill to look off and saw these three cowboys on their horses, coming in from a day on the trail. I couldn't believe how good it turned out! I also got two other great shots from that day. "Antelope Moon" and a great image of a coyote I named "Looking for Leftovers". See the whole days adventure in this video!

Antelope Island, covers an area of 42 square miles and is the largest of ten islands located within the Great Salt Lake, Utah, United States. The island is protected as Antelope Island State Park.

Native Americans visited the island on occasion and the first non-native to visit the island was fur trapper Jim Bridger in the winter of 1824-1825 when he reached the island by constructing a boat from willow branches and a bison hide.

Antelope Island State Park is a wonderful place to visit, hike, bike and explore. Wildlife is abundant with herds of bison, deer and pronghorn antelope. You can also often find coyotes, fox and porcupine if you keep a sharp eye out.
