First Post!

Welcome to my photography blog. I like to take my camera when I go hiking in the nearby mountains, and occasionally I get a photograph I like. Here are a few from the last couple of months.

On the west side of Colorado Springs is a city park that runs up North Cheyenne Canyon. This contains some of the city's most beautiful scenery, and it probably ranks with the best scenery in any city in America. These first couple of pictures are from that area.

The first photo shows Helen Hunt Falls, an easy to access waterfall in the park. The second was taken from a bridge on the Seven Bridges Trail just above the park. In both cases I was experimenting with a neutral density filter to slow down the exposure and get the curtain effect on the waterfall and stream.
This last one is from the yearly Colorado Balloon Classic, held in Memorial Park in Colorado Springs over Labor Day weekend. Each morning just after sunrise they have a mass balloon ascension, and the riot of color and sound as you're among all these balloons taking off at once is astounding. When the wind is right, the balloons try to dip the basket in the lake right after they take off, and that's what this picture shows.
