Fall in Provo

Just a few shots around the house and up the canyon mostly at sunset and sunrise.

Moonrise over the Wasatch Mountains.

Undergrowth in the aspens along the side yard.

Maples and fire bush. Yellow Norway maple hangs over a smaller red orange native Utah Bigtooth maple and on the left a bright red winged euonymus, also called fire bush.

Bridal Veil falls in the early morning light up Provo Canyon in the Wasatch Mountains.

Sunset colors in the sky over the cottonwood and maple trees.

Purple alyssum, the last of the summer flowers in the front garden.

Limestones of the Oquirrh Formation in the Wasatch Mountains of Provo Canyon in the early morning.

Remnants of the summer garden. The tomatillos and tomatoes that didn't quite make it.

Burr oak acorns in the gutter in front of the house.

Another view of moonrise over the sunset colored Wasatch Mountains.

Hello there,

I found your blog in a Google image search for fission tracks, namely your post here: http://urth-picturepost.blogspot.com/2013/04/more-geology-photos-from-my-travels.html Sorry for asking this here, but I couldn't find any other contact information on your blog.

I'm a professional paleontological illustrator who is currently working as lead illustrator on a book related to the evolution vs. creationism "controversy". The book is a pro-evolution text whose purpose is dismantling a number of creationist arguments. One of its central chapters is about radiometric dating, and dismantling the creationist arguments related to the age of the earth. Fission tracks are an important part of this chapter, and we would like to know if you'd be willing to let us use your photograph of fission tracks in the above blog entry, specifically this one here. We are willing to pay a licensing fee for the image if you grant us permission. Let me know if this is doable and please feel free to email me for more information at e.deinonychus(at)gmail.com. Thanks!
