So the DA app....clunky. It's visually & appealing but functionality needs some work. The message center is not only disorganized but rather a pain.
Thoughts?
The Brilliance Of Beckwith by kkart
The Brilliance Of Beckwith
East Beckwith Mountain comes alive as alpenglow hits the mountains side and paints the purple and pink during sunrise. Located along Kebler Pass outside the town of Crested Butte, Colorado, I spent a lot of time down here this Fall and came home with a massive amount of images. It's utterly stunning down there and next year I will be calling it "base camp" as well as there's a lot of areas down here I want to explore & photograph. As far as this shot goes, my mouth was basically completely wide open as I took clicked the shutter. The color backed up by distant rumbled of thunder, sure made for some incredible atmosphere!

The Storm Catcher-2 by kkart
The Storm Catcher-2
Ok, this photograph....I was rather speechless when I took this shot and I have a story to tell about it as well. So away we go!
While down iCrested Butte, Colorado this Fall photographing the incredible Fall color, I ran upon a cozy little spot that was...well absolutely perfect. There was only one problem. It was on the property of a horse & cattle ranch. Now, I am not one to be on people's property without permission to get a photograph but I am also not what you would call the reserved type either lol I figured what have I have to lose, I'll go knock on the ranchers door and ask him if it's ok if I can take some photographs on his property where I wanted to be. I have all my gear around my neck, my clothes look like I have been crawling around on my belly in the dirt and muck for a month...worst he can say is "no", right? Right. Well, I didn't have to do that because 30 seconds later up come a pickup with a horse trailer and here the rancher was. He rolled down his window, looked at me, smiled and said "can I help you" to which I grinned "I hope so! I really want to get down there to photograph the landscape you have in your valley...it is utterly incredible". He smiled, looked at me and said "you only have about 15 minutes before that wind, snow and rain is down here in the valley, so you had better hurry! Get going! Want any hot coffee!?" I looked at him with excitement and said no but I am going to send you a print for this, I thank you tremendously!" His response? --"I'll hang it above the fireplace!" And this is one of the photographs I managed to take from his property. Photographed using my Sony A77 with a Sigma 170-500mm lens to get in close and to get the composition I wanted. The clouds were just amazing....dancing, twirling......and that sky was as dark as I have ever seen a sky.....I was over the moon when I clicked this exposure. Next up? Getting a print of this off to him as quickly as I can.

Do you shoot Sony cameras? 
If you do, I have a tip for you and it's one that you've probably never heard of. What if I told you that you could immediately make your photographs better at a cost of nothing to you? What if I told you I've moved away from using Lightroom as my mainstay photo editor and instead now use the software which came with your camera, Sony IDC, as my RAW converter? Are you interested? If you use Sony cameras you should be! Head over to my photoblog jdebordphoto.blogspot.com/2014… where I go in depth as to why I have switched and the massive benefits in doing so. Comparison samples all, posted!

Fall In The Gunnison National Forest by kkart
Fall In The Gunnison National Forest
The Gunnison National Forest outside of Crested Butte, Colorado shows off its incredible display of Autumn color as fog moves in shrouding the Aspen trees. 
It's hard to put into words how beautiful this scene was and how the trees simply glowed and shimmered. Perhaps the word "breathtaking" is best used here. 
Do you want to see how I created the image and why I have moved away from using Lightroom as my main photo editor and instead now use Sony IDC? Head over to my photoblog where I talk about this in depth and why I have redone my workflow jdebordphoto.blogspot.com/2014…
