We’ve had a lot of snow recently but the weather finally broke this past weekend. I took the opportunity to get out early Saturday morning and get a few (hundred) shots at one of the most scenic locations maybe in the country, certainly in the state – Garden of the Gods.
Here’s a couple of the very best shots from the day.
So I finally scrapped together enough pennies to get a new lens for my camera. Between Christmas money, birthday money, tax refund money, selling some of old and unused camera gear and buying a used lens I was able to make it work.
So today was the first day I got a chance to get out there and see what all that scrimping and saving had bought me.
Here’s a nice shot of Pikes Peak as seen from UCCS.
Here’s a zoomed in version of just the peak.
There’s actually enough pixels that you can actually see the structure at the top of the peak…
Here’s a portion of Garden of the Gods as seen from UCCS when zoomed way in… I wonder who owns those giant houses. I’m jealous of their view.
One more picture of Garden of the Gods.
I’m very impressed with the new lens. It’s got a huge photo range and it sufficiently sharp for shooting whatever I need to. Really happy with my 2-lens setup now.
