29. March, 2009 - Spring?

Lone Tree
Photos from Southern Utah

Still waiting to turn the corner into spring. I thought we were there about a week ago, and then it snowed. But it sounds like the chillier weather helped out in Fargo. Or at least postponed the worst of the flooding. I feel bad for the folks losing their houses, but find myself wondering why more wasn’t done earlier. The storm-track most of this winter was going a bit north of here, and I can’t be the only one who thought that most of that snow was going to melt and run into the Red River, can I? Well, I guess a guy can hope that once things get dried out this time around they’ll do some more preparation to avoid this problem in the future.

Meanwhile, I’m still processing photos from the trip to Utah. I’m up to 47 in the set as of this morning, and just might reach 60 by the time I’m done. It was a pretty productive trip, photography-wise. Aside from the photos in my computer, I spent some time yesterday cleaning out my cameras. I think I finally got the last of the red dust off the sensors. That part was considerably less fun than the shooting photos part. Kudos to the Rocket-Air. It’s a pretty good tool for cleaning out the insides of a camera.

I’m not the only one with some beautiful photos from the southwest. Ben has a post about Climbing as Metaphor which includes a whole bunch of pretty photos. It’ll be worth your time to check it out.
