Hiking in Black and White

 I have long had a love for Black and White Photos.... so indulge me a little!


After my Sons Famous Shirt Photo shoot - we , of course, had to hike a little bit and burn off those calories (in preparation for ice cream!!)

These rock structures are amazing to me, and with the clouds and the sunsets and oh wow - I had a great time playing photographer!



These rock outcroppings are so cool - and the skies make everything so dramatic.
This area was known to the Arapahoe Indians - 
\They called it the Land of the Earthborn Spirit




The outcrops in and around this area are almost entirely made up of Rocks of the Sherman batholith, which is a large mass of intrusive igneous rock that crystallized from magma, deep with in the earths crust.




Always a fan of trees - I am amazed at how sturdy they are - and how they will grow out of everything



Again - the skies - and while we were hiking our phones started sounding alerts . We had a flash flood warning and storms coming in - so you knew there were going to be some wicked cool skies coming....

Oh ya - and you had better find a safe spot!!!



This one just had to be in Color....

Enjoy your day!!

What wonderful scenery. Of course, I'm sure you had to walk a ways to get there. And for that I commend you. I'm not sure if I could have walked half as far. Thanks for sharing.

Love the depth and definition in your black and white shots. The color shot is a subtle beauty that awakens a desire to be part of the picture in me.

Beautiful scenery and photos! Is that land on your property? I LOVE that kind of scenery. You sound like my daughter (geology minor) talking about rocks - are you a geologist?
