Winter Afternoon In Garden Of The Gods B&w
Photo By James Hamilton

  • Title: Winter Afternoon In Garden Of The Gods B&w
  • State/Province/Region: Colorado
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Garden of the Gods
  • Nearest Town: Colorado Springs
  • Brief Directions: Garden of the Gods is on the west side of Colorado Springs and is easily accessed from 30th Street. There is no entry fee.
  • Notes: F22, 1/60 sec., ISO 200, Focal Length 20 (30 equivalent) mm
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: Garden of the Gods always presents fantastic photo opportunities. By far, my favorite time to image this park is after a snowfall as the pristine white snow contrasts nicely with the many red rock formations and the green pine trees. Also the area is often almost vacant of the large crowds that frequently roam the Garden. Originally I took this picture in sepia mode but transformed it in Lightroom 4 to make this B&W image. With the winter sun in the southern sky and beginning to set in the west, I chose a narrow aperature to create the starburst pattern and increase my DOF. I popped up my camera's built in flash to illuminate the boulder in the foreground.
  • Gear: Sony DSLR A-700 Camera, Sony DT 18-200 F3.5-6.3 Zoom Lens, Fill Flash

    Wonderful night/star picture Matt. The colors, and detail with the rocks in the foreground are very nice.

    Beautiful Image! Astro/Night photography seems to be quite a challenge, and you captured a remarkable landmark with it! Hoping to give this a try on next photo trip to the Hawaiian Islands. Will...

    "Absolutely in the right place at the right time". So very rare to see a double rainbow let alone have your camera with perfect glowing conditions.. Great capture
