Rain in the Garden


This image of the Southern Gateway rock is another shot from my Garden of the Gods Series. It was raining up on the mountain, and it threatened to rain while I walked up to the ridge that overlooks the park. I got back to the car in time to prevent soaking the camera. This ridge is same place, but a different angle (and day) from that used in the Classic View shot. I fiddled around the with PSE a bit to bring out the structure in the clouds. It's really hard to capture them on a gray day. But the water really brings out the colors.

I did not take a single shot today. Instead, I worked all day on re-designing my website. Seemed like a good idea as today was also very damp and drizzly. I've gotten spoiled by being able to wear shorts the last few days...

Be sure to hike on over to Scenic Sundays.
