Family Camping Trip/nature

My husbands family took a camping trip up Provo Canyon in Utah on Monday. I wanted to get some water pictures, because we camped right next to a river/stream. Not big enough to be a river, but to big and fast to be a stream. When I stepped close to the river to get a shot, I just about stepped on these Butterflies! I couldn't believe they would just sit there, I was a foot away from them and they didn't leave. So pretty!

I wanted to experiment with the slow shutter speed. It took me quite a few pictures to figure out what speed wouldn't over expose the pictures.

I was so excited to get one of these! I have always wanted to take a picture like this, showing how clear the water is. I am excited to get one of these printed to hang in my bathroom for Fung Shui. My sister got me hooked on Fung Shui stuff recently, so I have been trying to find things to photograph for it too. I am going to work on getting an Etsy shop set up, with Fung Shui pictures for sell. So cool!

I really liked the setting on this picture, and how it leads your eye to the back where the water disappears.

This was a reservoir near our campsite too, the water was beautiful, and I just love the trees!

That tall mountain in the back is Mount Timpenogas. Such an awesome mountain, and an even more awesome cave inside! : )

On our way home, we took a little detour over to cascade springs. It was a fun little place to walk around and it is all naturally formed.

I just liked these dead trees for some reason : )

This was at Cascade Springs also. Again I need to work on figuring out the best shutter speed for this type of photo, but hey it was my first day attempting it, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! : ) I can't wait to go into nature again, just to see what kind of pictures I can come up with :)
