    Would this be the piece of sky from which the Mormon General Authority likes to make His/Her pronouncements?

    What a view! The sky looks so clean…. It must be so cool living there.

    I went to Utah once, but I don’t remember it being close to that pretty!

    gorgeous! did you adjust levels to make it that blue or is it really like that?

  • kristal

    Those clouds are beautiful!

    i love that the houses are bathed in that beautiful blue. and the fact that you can see forEVER into the distance. great shot!

    I definitely agree with Maxigumee that the sky looks “clean”… We can’t blame Utah for the hole in the ozone layer, now can we?

    actually, this is what happens when you forget to turn off White Balance adjusted for incandescent light on the D70.

  • Miss Mea-Mea

    2005/01/11 at 5:06 am

    wow…are you using a blue filter on that shot?

    … which I’m sure you intended to do, right?

    Nice effect though.

  • Miss Kimberley

    2005/01/11 at 5:08 am

    Reminds me of when we used to do acid and go for nature walks.
    Yeah, it was a small town.

    Happy little mistakes, huh? Sometimes they’re the best.

    Beautiful….looks like early morning …and cold….like those mornings you don’t want to get out of bed. Oh wait…that’s EVERY morning! LOL!
    Have a great day all!
    Hugs,

    Thank you. If you only knew how much I needed that picture of optimism.

  • Allyson

    2005/01/11 at 5:11 am

    and then does god come down through the incandescent light when you’re off white balance?

  • christy

    2005/01/11 at 5:11 am

    Why is the sky bigger there than in Illinois? Boohoo.

  • gardens grey

    a stunning picture, hey no one can question where you live after a picture like that.

  • red

    2005/01/11 at 5:17 am

    pretty. i wouldn’t mind if the real world looked like that all the time.

  • rb

    2005/01/11 at 5:17 am

    its now 10.15 here in perth and the stars are still out and the sky is never that shade of blue! I wish we had yummy utah snow here!

    morning? or night?

  • mrs. george #2

    2005/01/11 at 5:19 am

    Eerily pretty. The clouds look angry and I think G.O.D. might have something to say about that.

    Oh, and that was like the BEST FIRST COMMENT, EVER.

  • Ana

    2005/01/11 at 5:22 am

    Beautiful picture.

  • Michelle

    2005/01/11 at 5:23 am

    You’ve captured how ‘tall’ the sky seems out west…as a recent transplant, just walking outside at the right time of day to view _that sky_ awes me. Great photo!

  • Erin

    2005/01/11 at 5:24 am

    Is that picture untouched or have a dooce effect of some sort on it? It’s amazing!

  • Girl.A

    2005/01/11 at 5:24 am

    Shoop! That is eeeeery.

    Complex values. Likey.

  • Brianna

    2005/01/11 at 5:26 am

    Gah, why bother with cyanotypes when you get all that beautiful blue digitally?

  • HoneyBunny

    2005/01/11 at 5:26 am

    that’s a gorgeous photo. i love the darkest part of the sky.

    i don’t know if you care or not, but that guy who was stalking/harassing/threatening me was fired from his job yesterday. he wasn’t ‘dooced’ though. i see being ‘dooced’ as a positive thing. this ass got what he deserved 🙂

    anyway, keep on being heather and keep loving jon, chuck, and leta. you’ve got a great life, constipation and all 🙂

    Never thought I would say this, but I think I might want to come to Utah. 🙂

  • Karry

    2005/01/11 at 5:28 am

    was this taken with a filter or was it ‘shopped to look like this?

    very pretty, but almost too blue.

  • Melanie S

    2005/01/11 at 5:29 am

    That’s it! I’m moving to Utah. I’ll kidnapp GEORGE! and force him to return too.

  • Wicked H

    2005/01/11 at 5:30 am

    Mesmerizingly bewitching.

    Thanks Dooce!!!

  • Karry

    2005/01/11 at 5:30 am

    actually forgive my last comment – just read your explanation of why it’s so blue.

    A happy mistake! I still like the image tho… 🙂

  • Alex

    2005/01/11 at 5:31 am

    Did you add some saturation to that, or is it that naturally blue?

  • Alex

    2005/01/11 at 5:32 am

    Nevermind. I read the answer.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging.

That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
