California Gulch

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

This is California Gulch. It’s below California Pass. It’s not in California. It’s in Colorado. It’s near Silverton, in the San Juans.

This is what fall looks like just outside of Crested Butte, Colorado. It’s pretty nice.

August 7, 2013 – Woods Lake and Dolores Peak

Woods Lake and Dolores Peak at Sunrise

This is a view of Dolores Peak and Woods Lake just after sunrise, in Uncompahgre National Forest, SW Colorado.

I just got Lightroom. Believe it or not, up until now I’ve been doing all of my image post-processing in Picasa. It’s (very) basic, but assuming your original image is in pretty good shape, you can usually get some pretty good results.

But, I got Lightroom. And this is my first ham-fisted attempt at using it. The problem is, my computer is old. Very old. And Lightroom doesn’t run very fast. Like, when I move a slider, it takes 4-5 seconds to see the result. This makes subtle adjustments just about impossible. (If you want to move a slider back and forth 4 or 5 times to get it just right, you’ll be sitting there for a couple minutes – for ONE adjustment. Yarrghh.)

So, I’m basically looking at upgrading my PC now. And in the meantime, there’s this one. I feel like it’s a bit over-processed. Also, I tried starting from scratch a couple times to se if I could replicate the results (to see if I really understood what I was doing), and I couldn’t come close (which means I don’t, yet.) Oh well, figured I’d go ahead and toss it up here, since I had it and all.

July 31, 2013 – Palmyra Peak and Mt. Wilson

Palmyra Peak and Mt. Wilson

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

You’re looking at Palmyra Peak (close on the left) and the Wilson Massif (Mt. Wilson, Wilson Peak and El Diente Peak) (far, on the left right). You can also see Lizard Head, it’s the little pokey thing a little bit right of center. This was taken from Telluride Ski Resort, near the top of the Revelation lift.
