Sepia Scenes: Garden of the Gods

AnnieElf introduced me to Sepia Scenes. My first entry is a photograph from Garden of the Gods in Colorado. Mind you, I don't have Photoshop programs loaded onto my new computer (yet) so this (bland) rendition is via Windows Live Photo Gallery.

This was taken "on the fly" with a Fujifilm Finepix S1000 using the built in autofocus and picture stabilization. I used my steering wheel as a platform; I'm amazed that none of the flattened insects on the windshield made a guest appearance in this shot!


Thanks for stopping by ~*~

Hi Au - Thanks for the shoutout and welcome to Sepia Scenes. Love the image. It would fit in beautifully in an old travel book.

You have very beautiful photos here, and you made an excellent choice for an entry to Sepia Scenes. The sky is interesting and the subject matter lends itself well to sepia.

A blogger who lives in Colorado Springs and photographs the Garden of Gods and surrounding areas too from time to time is here:

I think you will enjoy his photos too.

Thanks for visiting, commenting on, and linking to my blog!

Oh also:

Excellent background musical selection! Cristophori's Dream is one of my favorite pieces to play and to listen to.

Thanks for commenting on my sepia post.

I like the solid rocks against the softness of the sky.

never even heard of the Garden of Gods before.
Most interesting picture.
Participating in Ruby Tuesday and Sepia Scenes have made my world so much richer.
Now I have to seek knowledge in depth about this amazing garden.
Thank you so very much.

I like the way sepia defines the rock and textures in this photo. I don't think you need to worry about it being bland!
