This unnamed basin area, south of Ouray, Colorado has abundant wildflowers and mountain waterfalls that beg for their photo to be taken. Take the Black Bear Pass off highway 550 near the bottom of Red Mountain Pass. Four wheel drive vehicle recommended.
Garden of the Gods Park, the # 1 rated park in the country, has many places worthy of that Kodak moment, including this one that frames Pikes Peak from the Siamese Twins rock formation.
One of my favorite landscapes. Taken at sundown, the foreground was in shadow, so I used my flash to better show the wildflowers. Molas Lake has a campground and is a good fishing spot just south of Silverton, Colorado.
