Ridge Sunrise | Garden of the Gods

Photographed while hiking through Garden of the Gods one morning!

The nature park in Colorado Springs is known for the great sandstone rock formations, but that doesn’t mean there’s not plenty of beauty to be found besides!

Let’s remember that beauty is everywhere, and often there are gorgeous sights to be enjoyed if we simply turn around and look in the less popular areas!

Sunset Tower | Before & After Editing

Original OOC (out of camera) image versus the final, edited photograph below.

Sometimes editing is a bit more subtle, but how ever long we edit, let’s keep our intention in mind.

How we edit our photography depends on the mood we’re going for, the story we want to tell, and the purpose behind our chosen technique.

Let’s remember to keep our intentions in mind!

Tower | Garden of the Gods

Photographed at the end of a day trip around Pikes Peak last Summer.

It goes to show that sometimes the best part of our adventures is the end, regardless of our destination.


Road trips are relaxing, exciting, inspiring, and sometimes saddening. Even if our adventure only lasts a few hours, let’s make an effort to get out and see new sights, explore well-worn roads, and enjoy some solitude to relax and reflect.

It often pays to step off the beaten path, if only to see the familiar in a new way.  There’s also a great chance of encountering something you didn’t even know was there.

The world opens up and becomes so much bigger when we take the time to really explore.

Let’s get out and enjoy the views of a path less trodden.
