Continuing with my hike in Horsethief Park, it has some lovely mountainous views.
This next shot looks like it was taken with a fish-eye lens, but it's just the natural shape of the hills.
It's called Horsethief Park because horse thieves used to hide out here.
There are some remnants of old structures in a couple of places off the trail, down by the stream.
I would guess they were related to mining. I've got several posts to write about mining in the area as I took a day to explore that aspect of the area's history recently, including going into a mine shaft and visiting an active surface mine. But those photos are for another time!
Born in London, I've lived in The Netherlands, New York, and Washington DC. Now I've settled down in Colorado and love taking pictures. Until October 2014 I used a Nikon D40X, but now it's a Nikon D5300. I do almost no photo editing - occasionally I will crop or remove a dust spot, but that's all. What comes out of the camera is what you see here.
