I COULD HARDLY believe my eyes. I was lounging next to our RV on the shore of Utah's magnificent Great Salt Lake when the sun, a minute before just a big red star in our sky, stole all the orange from God's matchless palette and started the Salt Lake version of the Greatest Show on Earth. I took more than 100 photos, each one magnificent in its own way, each a little different from its predecessor. This is one of my favorites.
