Loveland Pass, Colorado
This view was something, as the light hit the peaks and forest, needless to say I took several with different compositions (portrait style for instance) which I will be uploading in the days to come. For those of you who wondering, no it actually isn't HDR, instead I used my Sony a550's DRO (dynamic range optimization) ability on 3 for this shot, I haven't really played with DRO much, but I have to say I am really liking the results! Pretty crazy road, huh? Not to bad for iso 1000 either, I guess. Did I say I am loving the lack of noise in my new camera? lol

I hope you all like it
John

I envy you big time. I love the mountains so much, but am stuck in Iowa with my family. I spent quiet a few years on the west coast and developed a keen desire to return. The light as you say is super, I woke to that color many a times while camping. (Please, enjoy it a little more, I want to feel the joy.... hehe)

Not always easy to take the high road, but always the right choice.

Stunning scene! Were you standing on top of the mountain? It almost looks like the view from a helicopter or something. :giggle: I'm guessing you were just up on the mountain, though. :clap: Great work!
