As winter begins to pass, and after considerable reflection of a 33-year career in a very competitive field of commercial advertising photography. I realized after the summer of 2017 living in the wilds of Zion by myself most of time, that our consumer world is too much with us.  It wasn't tell I spent a lot of private time in nature, that I tuned in my inner self and felt the connectedness not only to our planet but the universe.

Mother earth and father sky.

So if anyone is interested in talking about this or visiting let me know? 

I'm also becoming very aware that nature bats last and she's on deck.     Mother earth has a very dark side as well.....
It was a interesting fall on the Zion plateau.

On the first day of fall I was working at the Kolob market & fly shop. I spent a lot of time near the market - it is kinda the center of the top of the Zion plateau.  I took the opportunity make a self portrait of myself - something I rarely do :

The fishing at the resevoir was good, I caught a lunker rainbow trout early in the morning on a soggy dry misquito fly with a 3lb tippit - he was a old man a didn't put up much of a fight, he was yummy and fed four filleted out. then they drained the lake, because of invasive fish from folks fishing with the wrong live bait. Hopefully with some snow this winter it will return:

As fall settled in early the Aspens turned a wonderful gold color. I made a image of them reflected in the lake early one morning.

The Narrows are the show case part of Zion and just amazing.,+UT/@37.1807778,-113.0241361,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x80ca8d360b511ef1:0xd9b264a5aeb7087a!8m2!3d37.1888713!4d-112.9985515?hl=en

After much consideration I have moved to Cedar City to pursue a dream in Zion just above the city.
Sometimes you have to pursue a dream that no one can see,  but yourself, for me it's all about balance & simplicity.
When balanced & in yourself all is right with the outer world.
