Last week, I went with the Jones and enjoyed the family vacation at Lake Powell, Utah.
We arrived at Hall Crossings Dock, Lake Powell on Monday right about noon after 6 hours of driving from Salt Lake City, Utah. There are 12 of us total: I, Bruce and Kathy Jones (the oldest generation of the family); Paul Jones (Bruce and Kathy Jones’s son), his wife, Liz Jones, and his son, Spencer Jones; Richard Jones (Bruce and Kathy Jones’s son), his wife, Camile Jones; and Susan Lusk (Bruce and Kathy Jones’s daughter), her husband, Gary Lusk, her son, Tyler Lusk, and her daughter, Hannah Lusk.
Richard and Camile didn’t arrive at Hall Crossings until late at night. They drove from New Mexico to meet us up at our house boat.
The morning after, we went out on Richard’s boat to scout for a spot to park our houseboat on Lake Powell. The spot we found is perfect as we get the houseboat in the shade before 10am and after 4pm. This allowed us to cool off after enjoying the sun on the lake.
I used a ND filtered to capture to image above. The ND filter allows my camera to capture long exposure in broad daylight, giving the smooth water motion and allowing the beautiful reflection to go through.
Here are a few photos of the family.
One of my favorite family portrait of the Jones is at the beautiful Hidden Canyon Kayak place deep in the Escalante Arm of Lake Powell.
I love how the image is not only a beautiful family portrait but it also shows the magnificent beauty of this Hidden Canyon Kayak at Lake Powell, Utah. The sun finds its way through the curves of the rock formation in the canyon to light up the hidden water channel. This is probably my favorite family group portrait I have ever taken.
