Salty sunset

"As the sunsets over the Great Salt Lake, visitors line the beach area of Antelope Island State Park in Syracuse, Utah, Saturday, July 17, 2010. Antelope Island State Park is the largest island in the Great Salt Lake."

I can't lie, in my eyes this image is pretty cliche. But one cannot escape the beauty of a great sunset. It was refreshing to see such vivid colors over the water - reminded me of home.

While sunsets are typically awesome out west, I haven't watched the sun dip below the horizon in a long time. And what a better place to view it happen than in the middle of the Salt Lake.

Now, I've been living in Utah for almost a year now and have yet to see if you really do float on the Great Salt Lake. So I headed up to Antelope Island State Park to test it out.

After finding that it's true (and utterly amazing), snapping some frames of others floating, I headed back to my car as the sunset.

Only having my 35mm, I was quickly disappointed that I had walked the half mile from the water to my car with nothing longer.

But I then remembered I had my 300mm in my trunk from the other day and started snapping away.

What a great night.
