In all the years I’ve lived in Denver, and known about the rock climbing people do in Eldorado Springs (up near Boulder), I’d never made the time to go up there. This last week, while my girlfriend Elizabeth was here, I suggested we head up to check it out. It’s a beautiful state park and, sure enough, there were rock climbers everywhere I looked. There is also a sweet little creek running thru the canyon, so I made an attempt at a slow-shutter photograph of one section of it. Not having a tripod, I wasn’t able to get a particularly long exposure, but this one at 1/6 of a second got some of the feeling I was after. If you’re up in the Boulder area, and looking for a nice place to hike, I’m putting this on my highly-recommended list!
I found myself yesterday with a little extra time on my hands down in Colorado Springs. It had been a long time since I’d paid a visit to Garden of the Gods, but wasn’t sure I wanted to go thru the hassle of getting my camera weather-ready. I hadn’t planned on doing any shooting, but what else was I going to do with three hours?Read More
Last Friday, we woke up here in Denver to a thin sheet of ice on everything. I didn't get the picture of me wiping out on the stairs as I came out of my house -- THAT would have been a picture! I did, though, get this fun little shot. Not quite as effective as aspirin for my poor aching body...but it was some consolation! Happy New Year all!
