Your shots are so wonderful!! Thanks for sharing them with us. I love Colorado too--was there in '06 with hubby on business!! I wonder if it's a Colorado thing--driving too close to the edge of a cliff--our tour guide did that a couple of times on our trip up to Loveland!! He took great pleasure I'm sure in terrifying us Canucks. Great tour though, was face to face with a daddy buffalo(with a very weak fence inbetween) and stood on the Great Divide!! I'd go back in a heartbeat!! Can't wait to see the rest of your pics!!

Hi Stephen,
I was fascinated by this photo when I clicked on it and saw it enlarged.
With the title "Mining Country" I realized that the huge brown areas are where the mountain has been gouged by people to extract goods held within the mountain. Seen from that perspective, it almost looked like an area of bruising on the mountain from having undergone the trauma of mining. This is a powerful photo that shows graphically how we alter the earth. Thank you for posting this photo, and thank you also for joining my blog. It's nice to "meet" you, so to speak, here in the amazing blogosphere. Colleen

i was able to take this photo outside the car window. i pulled over by the road and did not have to get out while using a 400mm zoom.
