Something Different — Southern Colorado Landscape
Southern Colorado is just gorgeous. I used to go camping and hiking up there in the Rio Grande National Forest. You could go days without seeing anyone, and at night, not a light in sight to interfere with the stars. It was just beautiful.
In this part of the forest, you don’t have the huge mountains that you have in other parts of the state, but a more subtle beauty that I really enjoy. And it isn’t as popular for recreation as other parts of the state, so you get all the solitude you can handle.
This photo was taken back when I was using my first DSLR, the Nikon D70 with the kit lens. Even though this wasn’t pro equipment, I still really like the way this photo turned out. It was taken late in the day during the summer, and the light was just beautiful. So please remember, that equipment isn’t the end all to achieving good photos. It’s the eye behind the equipment and knowing how to use what you have. Lesson over. Hope you enjoy this photo!
Shot with an 18-70mm lens at f/11.
