And that is exactly what I did, slowdown, park, get out the tripod, and started shooting away!

Often times the most beautiful things are the things which we fail to notice. Life’s little things, like this for example. My intention was to head for the mountains and normally when doing so, I wouldn’t even be paying attention to the sky, let alone stopping to shot it. Well, this time I took some time out so I wouldn’t miss it! Glad I did to, it was downright stunning! No one around, as you can see, just me, the breeze, and the colors of nature. I have always said that there is something about being up at this time of the day….and yeah, there is.

Processed in HDR, long exposure using my 4ND and my CPL, let me know what ya think watchers! Print to come.

I am a photographer based in the beautiful state of Colorado who focuses on nature, retro and country lifestyle images on my wonderful state! I have been shooting since the middle 1980s and my adventures have taken me all over. I am grateful for where I live and consider myself fortunate.Join me on my photographic journey to show you that beauty still exists in the world.

    It amazes me how scenes like this are missed by the masses. The fact you were alone is testament to this and great job you were there to capture it John. Nice texture on the road that leads you in nicely and the lighting of the grass on the side of the road is warm.
