Description

This tele-zoom photo puts the two main subjects close to the intersections of the "thirds" - the "Kissing Camels" themselves and Pikes Peak. Using the zoom technique makes the two appear much closer together than the 15 or so miles that separate them. Always photogenic, the red rocks of Garden of the Gods and the slightly snow-dusted top of Pikes Peak are Colorado icons.
