Before The Storm

Albion Basin, Alta, Utah

Limited Edition of 20 Museum Grade, Fine Art Prints.

Alta Ski resort opened on January 15, 1939, 84 years before I took this photograph. Albion Basin is a popular place to photograph wildflowers in the summer, hike and enjoy the high mountain terrain. I typically find it overcrowded and not to my liking. I live less than an hour from Alta and yet I hardly ever visit Albion Basin because of the crowds. The winter of 2022-2023 was one of the best on record and because of this the wildflowers didn't get really good until mid August. I decided to take the drive up there on August 15, 2023 to fight the crowds and try to photograph this scene. I find scenic locations at ski resorts hard to photograph because of the chair lifts, roads and trails, and all the people. So I took this photograph with the intention of cleaning it up, removing almost all signs of development and making it look like it did around 1900 before the storm of growth hit the mighty Wasatch mountains changing what was once wilderness into an amusement park of sorts.
