Extended Thursday: Trail Ridge Road

leave a comment »

For the third installment of Extended Thursdays, we’re going back to Colorado.  The Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mountain National Park is a photographer’s dream (and because of the frequent stops, his travel companion’s nightmare).  I shot six different sets of potential composites, and eventually decided to construct two of them:

All in all, I left Colorado with 17 potential extensions.  These four made the final cut, but I hope to return to the archives one day to see what how the others turn out.

Extended Thursday: Mt. Audubon’s top and bottom

leave a comment »

Welcome back to Extended Thursdays.  I have to admit that I’m impressed with myself for delivering on last week’s resolution.  Today we jump ahead a few years to a trip to Colorado.  The extension concept had been bouncing around my head for a while, and I took advantage of the amazing panoramas to test out my ideas.

Here, you can see Mt. Audubon from down below

and up on top


Needless to say it was a fantastic hike with great views.
