Why We Care

  • Sunday evening in March 2016, our family visited Black Rock Beach to view the Great Salt Lake.

It was evening and as the sun settled in the west, the lake came alive with previously hidden texture and beauty. We watched in awe as the magnificence of the lake reviled itself, and I just had to capture the moment with my camera.
