Two Peas and Their Pod: Scenic Utah

Scenic Utah

We recently purchased the Canon Digital Rebel XSI early Merry Christmas to us:) We are loving it, but still need to figure it out! We have messed with it some, but we have been busy. Our major issues are lighting and just figuring out what all of the buttons do..ha!

We drove up Little Cottonwood Canyon in Salt Lake City to take some nature pictures for fun. Wow, we live in a gorgeous place! I am always in awe at the mountains that surround us. The views are breathtaking.

So here are some scenic views of Utah. We used our new camera! Hopefully our pictures will improve soon. We just need some practice and time to figure things out
. It is a wonderful camera!

Judging from the pics, I think you might have the camera all figured out already :) I've never been to Utah, but it looks very scenic and nice!

What beautiful photographs! Where I come form, snow is rare, so I just adore the pristine whiteness in these shots against the brilliant blue sky.

BTW, congratulations - you are a "Pay It Forward" Winner! You can find directions on how to get in touch with me here:

How exciting you guys. Of course you picked the best camera brand around. I'm looking at getting a Digital Rebel one of these days. For now our S5 IS will suffice, because it takes some excellent photos as well.

Beautiful shots! Looks like you guys are getting the hang of it. I have the same camera and I seem to use the macro setting the most! That and the button for portraits for the kids. Looking forward to seeing more great pictures.
