This photo was taken from the Slickrock mountain biking trail in Moab, Utah USA.  Applying a blue photo filter turned a golden sunset into a dreamy lavender color.

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is to share a photo that makes you dream!

Happiness Is…

…a summer sunset picnic high in the mountains!

A couple of weeks ago, hubby and I took a drive up a popular mountain trail in northern Utah, USA named Skyline Drive to have a sunset picnic and capture some sunset photos.  This trail is a 24-mile rocky dirt road located along the beautiful Wasatch Range mountains between Bountiful, Utah, and Farmington, Utah.  The starting altitude is about 4,550 feet and climbs to about 9,200 feet.  Along the way, you can see great mountain scenery, forests and spectacular views of the Great Salt Lake.  We started this trail on the Bountiful side and were at the very top of this trail when we took the photo above.  It was quite windy at the peak that day, making it difficult to hold the camera and tripod steady, but we still got some nice photos.  (Bountiful is Utah’s second settlement after Salt Lake City, which is the state’s capital.)

This post is also for Island Traveler’s theme this week of Weekly Image of Life: Breathtaking.

If you happen to have an image or posting with your own interpretation of “Happiness Is…”, feel free to include the link in the comments below.

This photo was taken when we were visiting the Greek island of Mykonos.  I wanted to create a silhouette of the front part of the church, and have the cross behind it illuminated by the sun.

Blue Lake is located in the beautiful Uinta Mountains of northern Utah, USA, and requires a four-wheel drive to get there.  It was peaceful and isolated with only two other campers around the lake while we were there.  It was almost like having the place all to ourselves!
