Week 29 # 1 At A Distance

11 Comments

When we visit our daughter in Colorado Springs a trip to Garden of the Gods is often on our list of places to visit. The beautiful red sandstone formations are so fasinating and I always find something different to see and explore when we walk or drive through the park. If you haven’t been there add it to your bucket list of places to visit. Around every twist and turn of the pathways or roads through the 480 acre park you will find beautiful views that just take your breath away. We were fortunate on this day to have clear skies and moderate temperatures to do our exploring. Over the next several weeks I will share some of the shots I took that day, how fortunate I am they fit so many of the themes for our challenge!

The first shot is taken from an overlook spot before entering the park. You can see Pikes Peak and all its glory in the background. The stone formations in the foreground are a popular attraction in their own right. In the second shot you can see what appear to be two camels kissing on the left side of the formation. Thus the name Kissing Camels. There are beautiful homes in near by neighborhoods that see this view daily. How lucky they are!

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
