Silver Lake is about 40 minutes outside of Salt Lake City. The lake is completely encircled by a boardwalk, so it was pretty easy to get some photos from every angle.
Photo Tip: Snap those cabins or buildings nestled in the trees.
On the way out to Silver Lake, our bus broke down and everyone disembarked as we waiting for a new bus to arrive. I was able to get this shot from the side of the road.
Photo Tip: Crouch down to hide as much of the road as you can, so that the attention is given to those trees.
We eventually made it to the lake and it was really pretty there.
Photo Tip: Try to get some of the wildlife. This lucky duck swam by at just the right moment.
Lake reflections make me happy.
Photo Tip: If the lighting is right, try to get reflections from the water.
More reflections. I think this one’s my favorite of the bunch.
Photo Tip: Look for framing elements, like this space between the two shrubs.
And finally, a straight shot into the sun.
Photo Tip: Experiment with getting the run and lens flare into your shot.
