Where The River Runs


Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado....cold spring snowstorm, but yet, utterly beautiful...and was it ever quiet...almost to the point of being eerie, except the noise of the water itself...pretty soothing, really. Captured using the in camera HDR of my Sony a550 and shot with a Minolta 18-200 DT lens.

I hope you all like it
John

John, I love looking at your work and seeing how far you've come since I started watching you. You never cease to make my jaw drop and you always succeed in making me want to run away to Colorado.

Beautiful shot. You made winter look warm. :-)

Great work John! I really like the yellow tones of the plants there, mixing with the white of snow and the orange tones in the air. :thumbsup:

Stopped by to let you know I bought a version of this wonderful photo because that national park is one I'm very, very familiar with and love seeing in my home.
Thank you... :+fav:

Looks like you captured a lovely mood with this shot, John.
The clouds and the gentle glow looks great, but what I most like about this shot is the excellent composition. Nicely done!

Ya it is wonderful here, those who visit here always wind up doing 1 of 2 things: Coming back, or just flat out moving here. I don't know, I can't say that I ever have been in to John Denver, but what he says and sings about in his songs and how it relates to Colorado, is very true
