Rainbow Falls

Rainbow Falls

Tucked beneath Rte 24 outside of Manitou Springs, Co is, what some consider, an amazing public art site. Others consider it a graffiti painted desecration of what some call a sacred Native American site. Whatever you choose to call it or how you choose to see it, Rainbow Falls will grab your attention.

Exploring Rifle, Co

Rifle Falls State Park

My first winter trip to the park with a couple of photographer friends to capture some of the winter beauty. While the ice caves weren’t quite up to expectations, there was enough to capture some of the natural delights. I did play a bit with long exposure for the falls to soften the water flow, and I am happy with how the images turned out.

I have long wanted to shoot these falls and found myself near enough to the area this week to go capture them. Because of the force of the water, I did not need to go very slow to get some smoothness in the image.
I thought the autumn change added a bit of flavor.
