Today we went to Monument Lake at Monument, CO. Really not that far away north of Colorado Springs. I'd never been there before, and neither had Susan. After I helped set her up where she was fishing I went off exploring with my SLR as is usual.
As I walked toward the dam I seen this grandparent, and their grandchild playing in the water. It was so cute I had to photograph the scene.
This guy was near the dam fly fishing.
This I captured on the trail. It's a 1/4 second exposure, ISO 100. I think I used my ND4, ND8, and circular polarizer filter too.
This just looked spectacular.
This is the creek that flows into the lake. The exposure is 1/5 of a second, ISO 100. I think I used my ND4, ND8, and circular polarizer filter.
This is a 1/2 second exposure of ripples on the surface of stream. I thought the result would look rather artistic and it takes kind of an abstract feel. I think I used my ND4, ND8, and circular polarizer filter too.
The picnic table in the center of the frame captured my attention. I also wanted to get the stream in the image. 1/4 second exposure, ISO 100, ND8, ND4, and circular polarizer filters.
I'm not sure what these little white flowers are. It just kind of looked with the cat tails.
I did a good day, got in a good mile and a half hike I think. You have a great day and try to get out a little bit.
