|The Scenic Wonders of Utah|
Through the Eyes of Willie Holdman
When my new friend Patti Eddington and I discovered that we share a passion for landscape and wildlife photography, she suggested that I take a look at the work of Utah native Willie Holdman. Patti thought I would enjoy his photographs, and she was absolutely right! Willie's photography is gorgeous!
Willie Holdman's love for nature started early as he assisted his father with photography assignments for National Geographic. While attending Brigham Young University, he began to photograph the rural areas of Utah. To date, Willie has captured many of the natural wonders of his home state, from the peaks of the Wasatch Front in the North, to the red rock canyons and vistas in the South. Although he has traveled extensively, he feels that no other place matches the beauty of his home state.
My family has a home in Park City, and I have spent a lot of time exploring the surrounding areas, including Deer Valley, Midway, and Sundance. I share Willie's love for the beautiful mountain scenery, and I treasure my yearly summer getaways, where the clean air and blue sky washes away the stresses of city life.
Featured below are three of Willie's favorite Utah images (and mine), including "Timpanogos Wildflowers," "Bryce Glow," and "Zion Patriarch." You can view and purchase these photographs and many more on the Willie Holdman website. Willie also offers photography workshops near his home in Midway. I think I may become one of his students in the near future!
