Sunset at Garden of the Gods


Same shot as above only shot at two stops under-exposed.  Just shows how really bright this rock gets in the golden sunset!!

Same as above but in Silver FX

This image was taken on the shady side of the rocks.  The sunset would be on the right.  Quite a contrast to what was happening on the other side!

There is one white ridge, outstanding in a field of hard rock red!

WOW again!  This was such a fun shoot.  As you noticed, Tom and I had a very different style in shooting this site.  If you are ever in the Colorado Springs area you just have to go and walk this site.  The ridges run south to north so we guessed correctly that one side would be awesome in the evening light and the other side would be just as awesome in early morning light.  We were told of a viewpoint up the road and up the hill that would give us a spectacular view in the morning (is on the east side of the rocks).  Up next . . . Sunrise at Garden of the Gods!  Plus, I have put many more photos than shown here on the gallery section of . . . so you might just want to check over there for more photos.

Tom and I are back in Albuquerque.  Tomorrow we are shooting around Cuba, NM checking out  the San Joaquin Basin badlands.  Hope your weekend plans include some photography!!  Thanks for sharing.
