When six of us met up for the first Utah Photowalk, I don’t think any of us imagined where it would lead nine months later. We have over 200 members in our Flickr group, aliased from our own www.photowalkingutah.com URL, and 1665 images to date in the pool from 10 outings, plus the occasional impromptu meet-up. And we are still having fun, albeit a bit more organized fun than that first October Saturday in the rain.
So I am not shocked anymore to see 20 cars at the starting point when I arrive, the group growing to 40 as we gather up to meet the newcomers and outline the plan. We got to the Great Salt Lake plenty early for sunset, somewhere around 100°F. Issue out sunscreen and seek shade. While our guide, Charles Uibel went out to scout the sunset location, Rich improvised a Kenneth Linge style demo on the use of reflectors in hard backlit sunshine.
