Week 31 #33 Paths And Or Trails



Still in Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado Springs for this weeks photo. During our walk through the park this trail appeared on our left. I can only imagine where the trail might have taken me if I decided to follow it. The colorful red sandstone trail is very striking to me against the various hues of greens in the grasses, shrubs and trees. I decided to blur the edges a bit and like the effect. I have been playing around with Photo Shop Elements and had a great shot all framed but, for some reason I was unable to retrieve it. I promise before this challenge comes to an end I will be posting pictures that have been edited through it! I also will be getting myself out of auto mode. Its too easy and I want to challenge myself more. This shot however was taken in auto. I also decided to start listing what settings were used on each of my shots. Several other members have been doing that and it has helped me immensely.

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.
