    That’s gorgeous. You keep making me want to move to Utah 🙂

    Seriously, I’ve never seen sky that blue here.

  • Chris

    2005/01/09 at 9:17 am

    Wow. Is the color of the sky a Dooce effect, or the real thing?

    I want to blow it up, frame it, and hang it on the wall. Dooce, sell me a print.

    I wish there was something around here to take pictures of besides ducks and trees without leaves.

    A stunning photo!

    You should have a “don’t suck” comment policy, like Jon’s.

    Picture’s very interesting though.

    My husband’s from SLC and it’s so beautiful flying in to the city with those awesome mountains. We miss the mountains here in flat Detroit.

    oh wow. that’s more than beautiful. today is cold and not so clear here in boston. some days i wish i could see wide open spaces or mountains and just land. as robert smith sang: Maybe…Someday.

  • Shannon

    Pictures like that make me happy that I do live in Utah

    I love it.

    So good to be up in the wee hours of dooce photo posting. I was beginning to think I was such a lazy ass for being so late to the party.

    I’m still a lazy ass, but it looks like everyone else is today, too.

    Good morning out there, dooceland.

    Wow…but I’m glad I don’t have to drive in that weather.

  • Brooke from CT

    2005/01/09 at 9:44 am

    That is…just…wow. That’s all I can say. I truly wish I could do what you can do with that D70 of yours. Any secrets, Heather? Or is just pure talent?

    you CANNNOT be serious. you have the best pictures in the world.
    although I must say, my favourites are still the one of Leta. nothing can be cuter than that.

    Pow’rful. Wasatch is gorgeous. Awesome hiking too.

    I visited SLC and Provo for training a couple of years ago. Among the things I was stunned by that were non-Mormon-related were the mountains. I grew up in the west and hadn’t seen real mountains in a long time, since I live in Boston. I won’t even tell you how disappointed I was when I visited the “Green Mountains” in Vermont. They’re pretty, but… yawn.

    the skies of toronto, canada, don’t look anything like that right now. simply greyish today.

    but i can certainly dream of blue skies to return. especially with beautiful scenic photos like these!

  • krissy pants

    2005/01/09 at 9:52 am

    Georgeous! The vivid blues in the sky and mountains are amazing. Everything here is pukey ashen gray.

  • Girl.A

    2005/01/09 at 9:53 am

    Suck is such a subjective word. It can mean so many things.

    Ok, I thought the cult comments were jokes until I saw the pic today. The sky and clouds in this picture match the colors of the sunburst behind Dooce’s masthead silhouette. Subliminal?
    I think NOT.

    * That starburst looks like a Giant Blinding Ass Explosion *

    The truth will set us free.

  • just me

    2005/01/09 at 10:02 am

    OMG! I can’t believe how beautiful the sky is. Definately a nice sight to an Iowa girl who’s covered in ice and gloomy skies. Keep them coming!

    holycrap that’s gorgeous.

    Serously, you should sell some of your prints, I’m sure you’d make mad loot, especially with pics that awesome.

  • Elle Wiz

    2005/01/09 at 10:18 am

    I second the selling of prints. I subscribe to Webshots for wallpapers, and your pix are at least as high quality as their stuff. Sell, sell, sell!

  • honestyrain

    2005/01/09 at 10:19 am

    in the natural course of my day i would not likely find myself in a position to tkae such a photo because that view cannot be seen from my living room window. where DO you live and are there any houses for sale?

    Great photo!

    This morning, hubby and I got quite a laugh out of someone’s rant/run-ins with
    German toilets and I thought it was only fitting to share with the doocies who appreciate all things toilet and poop.

    Here is the beginning as a teaser, but you’ve got to read the whole thing to really appreciate it.

    “Whenever folks who have lived or traveled in Germany gather for a beer, sooner or later one subject is sure to rear its ugly head: what is the deal with those toilets?”

    and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this link gets you there…

    What I learned today:

  • pismire

    2005/01/09 at 10:38 am

    Dooce, I love the saturation of blue in the photo (normally I don’t like the color blue, but you have made this photo so striking yet calming). Beautiful.

  • scorp

    2005/01/09 at 10:43 am

    hehehe… sitzpinkel=pee seat I’m so glad my mom made me go to german school all those years to I could understand that one…
