Time for another classic shot, this time from Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, CO. A juniper frames Gateway Rock nicely in the dawn light. If you've never been here I recommend it. There are a lot of photographic opportunities. I'll post up another one or two from this area since I shot a number of classics recently. Let me know what you think!

I took this shot as the sun was setting at the Paint Mines Interpretive Park in Calhan, CO. Going there was a last minute decision and I arrived late in the day so I didn't get a good survey of the area before the light got good. Anyway, I liked the way the light hit this little hoodoo while the rest of the area was in the shadows.
