Last week was the annual Denny Family Campout and I drove to Wyoming for the weekend. I have a lot to learn about photographing scenery in bright sunlight, and should have read this about filters before I took these pictures! Still, maybe readers who haven't seen this part of the U.S. might like seeing it. The picture above is an example of the layered rock formation and coloring that's common all over Utah. This was on U.S. 40, just before entering Wyoming.
I got a kick out of this abandoned retro gas station in a small Wyoming town. Sorry, didn't remember to write down exactly where it was.
I wasn't sure what camera settings to use to capture the dust from this herd of sheep as the sheepherder drove them along, but it was really quite a sight.
I had to drive into Pinedale because I was staying in a hotel and just "camping" during the day, and I saw this herd of cattle painted on the side of a restaurant. Yep, we are in Wyoming now!
In case anyone wants to buy some real estate in Pinedale, here's the office for Wild Horse Realty. It really is a beautiful area, but very cold in the winter!
On the way to the campground where most of the family was, there were beautiful wild flowers like this all along the road. Next Friday I'll show you a few shots from the actual campout, including camp food and a moose on the loose.
