Bryce Canyon - A Different Perspective

Posted By Jim Carpenter

It's been a few days since anyone has posted here so I thought I'd resurrect a few images from a trip to Bryce Canyon a couple of years ago. These show the canyon from a different perspective than normally seen. I call image #1 "Into the Depths," taken while descending into the canyon. All images taken with a Nikon D70 and the 18-70 kit lens.

My wife and I took a recent swing through northwestern Colorado. These are a few images from that trip. The first is Wolford Mountain Reservoir near Craig, Colorado.

This football-sized wasp nest is in my neighbor's blue spruce tree.

Winter Panorama

Posted By Jim Carpenter

Just playing around with some images shot last week with my new Nikon D7000. Here's a panorama taken at Roxborough State Park just south of Denver. I resized it down quite a bit, so I hope it fits on your screen (1800 pixels wide).

Shadows

Posted By Jim Carpenter

While not a landscape image, I suppose this is the best place to post this architectural shot of shadow patterns created by the "sombrilla" in the courtyard of an art museum in San Antonio. I converted to black and white to emphasize the contrasts created by the complex interplay of shade and shadows against the white stucco walls and Mexican tile flooring.

Alaska & Canada Photos

Posted By Jim Carpenter

We spent two months this summer driving up to Alaska and back in our motorhome (9000+ miles). Here's a few photos from the trip...the first one is along the Alaska Highway east of Haines Junction, YT, with the St Elias Mountains in the background.

Red Rocks Park

Posted By Jim Carpenter

I picked up a used Nikon D5000 body from a fellow AM'er a few weeks ago and hadn't really had a chance to capture any images with it, so I took it out to Red Rocks Park on west edge of Denver one clear morning last week after a light snowfall. Here's a few samples -- this is Creation Rock and the backside of the amphitheater stage structure, taken from the Trading Post.

Macro Shots

Posted By Jim Carpenter

I recently acquired a macro lens for close-up photography with my Nikon D7000. The following series are all shot with that lens, an AF Micro Nikkor 60mm 1:2.8D, and the D7000 a couple of days ago. The subject is a bouquet of fresh flowers, and in one instance, a potted bulb. The first image is a rose from the bouquet. C&C welcome; I'm still learning and appreciate others' input.

Chaco Culture National Historical Park

Posted By Jim Carpenter

We recently spent several days exploring the ancient Chaco culture ruins in northwestern New Mexico. The highlight is an amazingly large complex of ruins in a remote wadi known as Chaco Canyon, several miles from the nearest paved road. Chaco Canyon is believed to have be the ceremonial and trade center for an early people known collectively as the Chacoan Culture, who are the ancestors of the current Pueblo people of New Mexico. The first photo is Kin Kletso pueblo, located in Chaco Canyon.
