A Photo a Week Challenge: View

Twin PeaksWhen you look to the east from my office building, this is what you see. Well, this is what you see on a really good day. On a bad day, like today, all you see is hazy smog and an outline hint of mountains. The Wasatch Front of the Rockies Mountains is one of my favorite views. People I’ve talked to who are visiting Salt Lake City for the first time almost always mention how much bigger the mountains are in real life than they thought they would be. Pictures don’t do them justice.


Get creative and find some unique and interesting views in the world around. Blog an image of a favorite view and post a link to your find here.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

  1. That’s the one thing I miss about SLC since moving to Missouri—the mountains, not the snow they bring, but the summer hikes up the canyons and the lakes at the ends of the trails. I miss other things about Utah, too, like all the old mining towns and sites that were fun hiking around and in and collecting rocks and gem stones. I don’t miss the snow, although we get a fair share here.

    I also used to like to hike up north of the Capitol, as well, past Ensign Peak. It’s really beautiful up there.

    It’s always fun to have another photo challenge. I just have to up my energy level to get out and take more photos.

    1. The mountains here are spectacular. And my husband and I love to hike in the canyons and backpack through the red rock in southern Utah as well. I’ve only been to Missouri once, but it has it’s own beauty, too. That’s one of the great things about America, the natural diversity.

      Thanks, and good luck with the challenge!
