Camping under the stars in Colorado is a dream come true. Or should I say REALITY!
Colorado has some very dark skies, once you get away from the Front Range. This past weekend, I joined a group of photographers as we took photos of the Milky Way while one in the group drove a car on the pass. Since I was taking a long exposure the light trails of the car were also recorded in the image. It was a very fun evening!
They say the first 5 miles of the Horse Drive are the most dangerous. The horses want to run and they do! Here they are crossing the bridge, where shortly after everyone gets to take a break. From here on out the pace slows and we all get used to being together on the #GreatAmericanHorseDrive.
It might look like I’m standing right in their path, but no worries, I’m actually off to the side of the bridge, wedged between a couple of parked cars. The road curves as it exits the bridge, so this isn’t nearly as dangerous as it looks. Plus I’m shooting with a 200mm lens, f8, 1/2000 sec at 1000 ISO.
I like how the horses are looking right at me. They like having their picture taken!
