as my dad and i make our way east we have made a few stops to soak in the sights. it's experiences like these that i am forever grateful i chose to study photography. there is nothing more relaxing - intoxicating really, than photographing sites that still me. one of our purposed 'en route hiccups was garden of the gods. there was one specific shot i attempted to capture for at least half an hour, maybe more. it was challenging because the frame held a multitude of different exposures and i could not figure out how to balance them all.
this is the most challenging part for me as a photographer, but i'm determined to learn how to better operate my well loved nikon. here is my personal 'money' shot of the garden of the gods i finally received.
