Pink and Blue

Sunset at Mueller State Park, Colorado. The shot was taken using a telephoto (320mm effective) to isolate. I applied the Orton Effect to give it a soft, dreamy feeling.

We are heading to Crested Butte, Colorado for memorial weekend. Unfortunately, the weather this weekend looks to be rather rainy. In terms of photography, this will be challenge for me as I'm not good creating images in those conditions. The practice will be good for me. Still, I'd rather have sunny weather.

To ensure a happy Friday, be sure to go to SkyWatch Friday.

Just beautiful!! Have a great weekend in Crested Butte. If I ever had to leave Telluride, that's the only other town I'd want to be in!

Very nice. The whole photo looks delicious. I'd heard about the Orton before, but never seen it in action. Now that I have, I'm going to have to try it out.

I think most of us would prefer sunny weather, but rain does create very different and spectacular images. Good luck!

Beautiful photo. The sky makes even the mighty mountains look subordinate.

How stunning. The snow on the peaks has the faintest pinkish tinge from the sky. Beautiful.
