From I-25 go west on Garden of the Gods Road until it ends at 30th Street. Turn south and travel 1.5 miles to the entrance of the park.

The late afternoon sunlight finally poured through a cleft in some of the tall sandstone rock formations of Garden of the Gods where a lone bush had taken root and was begining its springtime bloom. With the surrounding red walls the shrub appeared to be lit like a burning bush. Using a telezoom lens I was able to to isolate the event from the cloudy sky as I awaited for the sun to be uncovered from those clouds.
