The call of the open road

The call of the open Road

With mounting gas prices, the title seems a little out of place, don't you think. But I haven't had a real chance to experiment with my camera ever since we came back from our trip to Colorado, so I continue to pay tributes to what I think was as close to Xanadu as it can get, for us the Kubla Khans on the road :)

Somewhere in Colorado

Gawdess said...

each of them evokes a different moment and a different mood and each are beautiful, the jewel tones in the last shot are captivating.

Oooo wow, Moi. I think you have outdone yourself. Each shot is so different and unique. I could see the last one enlarged and on my livingroom wall. really nice.
Have a super weekend.

Awesome landscapes. Well-done!

tommie said...

those are amazing! I love the colors of the last one.

The sky is amazing on that second image, and I love how on the first one the road curves out of sight. I think most of our lives are like that -- our paths twist and turn and always include elements of the unexpected. Great shots!

The last several photos you've posted are great! It's been a while since I last stopped by ... keep up the great shots!

The ranch shots reminded me of the movie "City Slickers". :-D

Cris said...

Oh dear.... those are really great!!! Is the last one taken near Golden? So you drove?

Carmi said...

You've brought me right back to my last trip to Colorado about 18 months ago. I'd live there if I could - except I'd be so addicted to the scenery that I'd never get any work done :)

These are stunning. No surprise, of course, given your way around a lens.
