Gold In The Hills by kkart Gold In The Hills by kkart
A little pano work for you all....

As I said, Colorado in Autumn, there is no place else like it. Welcome to Kenosha Pass, where the hills in the evening light are filled with shimmering gold of the Aspen.

Needless to say I was completely gobsmacked from the color and light...it is honestly amazing to see!

I hope you all like it
John

Gaw i'm fall in love with it. Gold in the hills doesn't make us rich about money but can make us rich about love with nature. Very nice.

you seen what is going on at Photokina? Holy hell.....bye bye a700 huh? Oly 4/3, RIP, dead, goodbye...a whole mount gone, and the new Sigma SD1?? Holy crap!

Though nothing is confirmed yet.
The will release the a77 which is SLT, but that doesn't interest me at all, OVF ftw!
Some even said that the a560/80 are the last dslr's from Sony, after that everything will be SLT.
I don't know if Sony can afford doing that to millions who built their photography on their mount.
For now, I'm happy with my a550, we'll see what the future will bring!

Looks beautiful on the thumbnail, but the full size image refuses to display =[ I don't know if it is just me or if anyone else has issues with it? Never had an issue with your images before.
(running the latest Firefox, up to date add-ons etc).

Seems to work fine now, thanks!
I can really agree with what everyone else has said. I reckon it would be just as amazing in the late afternoon sun or even under a full moon. I have places that I keep going back to because they look different every time I see them - and no less beautiful. Imagining that Kenosha Pass is one that you will frequently revisit?
