Default More Spots

A deep spot full of boxwork (speleothem).



I thought of having a fast lens on the camera when I was in Wind Cave but ended up deciding the zoom was a better idea. The K1 and 28-105 did quite well, though the lighting was pretty dim in places.

A nearby spot for faces, taken with the K1 and the FA100-300 f4.7, a humble, lightweight lens and one that vignettes with the K1, but it's pretty sharp in the center.



An in-progress face spot:



Another deep spot, Jewel National Monument:



A spot for dying, both men and trees.



I wasn't in a creative mood, none of my photos in Deadwood were any good, but I thought this was interesting from the perspective that it was taken in a fairly dimly lit reproduction of saloon 10. I used deNoise for the noise, but I thought it was not bad, for ISO 12,800.

A spot for close encounters:



A spot named after the wearer of this coat.



And a cool drink in the spot (hotel) he built:



I've got lots more pictures that I need to go through, but I'm not so sure that they would fit into a various spot theme, though some of the locations are very famous, while others aren't (how many people have heard of Beartooth Pass?).

As you can tell, I had a very exciting summer trip.

Thanks, I had a great trip except for being downwind of a brush fire in Yellowstone. Now just waiting on the Jeep to get washed.

It was a wonderful trip. Not sure I'm all that thrilled to be home and have to try to organize my house - it's a disaster. I was so depressed about it that I just had to get away and I spent a couple of days up in Lone Pine, California. Had a great time but it didn't get anything in the house done.

I've been trying to tell myself that I shouldn't go anywhere until I have all my spare/extra stuff put away somewhere.

I'll probably post more when I finish going through the next set of photos. I'm still looking at Yellowstone pictures when I also went to Moab after that. And now I've got 3 days at Lone Pine to go through, too. Just wonder if I'll ever get caught up.

Hi Harriet, it's great to get back home again, that means you can start planning the next trip!
Simon.

How funny you should mention that! Last week I spent a couple of days in Lone Pine, CA and I'm now looking at a map of Arizona, thinking about heading that direction in December perhaps. Or maybe head further east into New Mexico. I'm still in the thinking stage. I'm still working on photos I took in Yellowstone though - I'm very behind!
