Garden of the Gods

Hello everyone. I apologize for never getting around to putting up a picture yesterday, I was busy, blah blah blah, you know how it goes. Also, I’m headed out of town later tonight, so this will be the last post until the middle of next week. And this is where we’re headed!

This was taken in Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, about a 10 minute drive from my parents’ house. We stopped by the last time I was out to visit because we had a couple hours to kill before we had to leave for the airport, and it’s always a nice spot to get outside for a little while. One thing I’ve noticed over the years is that the skies in Colorado tend to be a much deeper blue than you see in a lot of places (especially Seattle). I don’t know if it’s due to the elevation, the lack of moisture in the air, or what. But it seems to be a lot easier to really get that crisp sapphire blue out there, as opposed to the mushy baby blue that we usually get out here. Maybe I’m just imagining it, I don’t know.

I’m hoping to get out once or twice for a hike while I’m out there, so hopefully I’ll have some new picture-of-the-day fodder from the Rockies, so I can give you all a break from the insects. Keep yourselves out of trouble while I’m gone!


Notes: Canon EOS Rebel XT, 18-55 mm kit lens. 1/250s, f/7.1, ISO 100. Focal length: 22mm.
