Strawflower No. 11

Each day can be a new adventure and a new start.... if I choose to make it that way. It all starts with the night before. Before I fall asleep I ask myself  "was there anything I could have done different". We are so complex, and yet every fragile at the same time..... sort of like this humble strawflower. 

There's a little ditty that always starts playing when I do a strawflower edit. Allow me to share this with you:

I could wile away the hours
Conferrin' with the flowers
Consultin' with the rain
And my head I'd be scratchin'
While my thoughts were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain

-Scarecrow, Wizard Of Oz.

Reflections of Provo Canyon

Some of you may recognize this photograph. Google uses it in Safari on iOS as a landing page for Google+ links. Not sure about Android - maybe there as well? 

I was sharing it with someone today and just realized that I don't think I actually ever shared it on Google+. So here's a quick background. 

I took this picture back in 2010 while I was on a work trip to Utah. After day's work and on my way to the airport, I stopped by at the north end of Utah Lake - somewhere near Saratoga Springs. It was December, so there was hardly anyone around and the water was very still. In the background is Orem and Provo and BYU campus where I went to school for four years. The mountain is Mount Timpanogos, which I hiked a couple of times to the top. 

Utah Lake is a natural fresh water lake that's connected to the Salt Lake via Jordan River and is a remnant of a much larger prehistoric Lake Bonneville which covered a good portion of Utah thousands of years ago. 

Still one of my favorite sunsets I ever photographed.

I love it when +Matthew Inman gets angry.

Here is The Oatmeal's response to a Buzz Feed article attacking him: http://goo.gl/N4Cca

It's a must-read.
