    Those are some great shots How many exposures are you using?

    The 1st, 7th and third from last photos are ones that I really like

    3 exposures for each...

    Yes, the chapel is probably the best and most dramatic. I like the bike since it's my bike on a ride. It's my desktop now.

    I'm buying a new tripod and a remote switch tomorrow.



    Expect MUCH more...

    Those are the views and such that got me out there! (I'm looking forward to venturing into Denver soon for some downtown shots and so forth.)

    Hopefully the camera shop has a remote switch in stock.

    Awesome pictures...yeah keep them coming. Gorgeous country....if I didn't live by the ocean, that would be the kind of inland stuff I'd have to be near.

    The pictures take on a quality sort like Indy does with his pics...any special effects or something you're putting them through?

    Awesome pictures. The one of the chapel is my favorite.

    Cat - Ya, those pictures with the crazy colors is HDR. Check it out. Really cool stuff if your camera will do it.

    Have to say HDR starts to hurt my eyes after a few shots.

    Man, it is simply gorgeous out there.

    I love where I live now too but I moved here after living in AZ for a couple years and the open space in your images reminds me of there. I miss it

    Yes, we picked a good spot as 10 minutes away is basically any store you could want and 10 minutes south is wide open space, state parks, etc. The Rockies are an hour away.

    This place is SO much better than Ohio!

    Did some mtn biking at Hidden Mesa Open Space today a few minutes south of my house (could have biked via trail - oops!). The clouds and haze sucked, but it was a neat place and I'll be back.
