About two miles south of Ouray towards Silverton. Take a dirt 4wd road off to the right of the main highway and follow the left side where the road forks. Many waterfalls and wildflowers here!
I was experimenting with long exposures of the night time sky and stars. I needed some foreground subjects so I shot skyward through some pine trees. I used a flash to bring out the detail of the trees during a 30 second exposure at 1000 ISO on a tripod and wide angle lens.I was pleased to see the tangled branches and new buds lit up like Christmas trees.
