Comes the Light
Sunlight streaming through snow-covered branches on a winter morning. This one looked best straight out of the camera without any processing.

The Years Are Short
The days can be long, but the years are short. I couldn't resist capturing this moment as a father and his daughter gleefully played in the sunset.
If you put enough smoke into the sky, you can see the sun. Taken at the height of the 2015 summer wildfires from southwestern Wyoming, looking toward Idaho.
Temple of The Son
Speaking of Jesus Christ, one of my favorite hymns reads,
"He marked the path and led the way,
And ev'ry point defines
To light and life and endless day
Where God's full presence shines."

Sun Setting Softly
This was an unintentionally out-of-focus shot that I ended up liking more than the silhouettes I was attempting. :) The sun was setting over the Pacific Ocean.

If it weren't for the sun...
One advantage of living in the US Mountain West, is that we get a lot of sun.
Where most of us live, the tilt of the earth relative to the sun causes the sunlight to strike earth at an angle. This simple fact creates dramatic and beautiful effects! We call it autumn and winter.
Light on the Land
Sun rays illuminate the Payson Utah LDS Temple and the surrounding fields.

It's summer camping season. :)
Today is the summer solstice (for those north of the equator), the longest day of the year. I can see why some cultures have worshipped the sun - it brings life and warmth.
