That is beautiful. Reminds me of a vacation in Colorado and Wyoming. Good pic! Is your wife the photographer (Darla Presnell)?

Yes she is

Is your wife the photographer (Darla Presnell)?
Yes. Years ago (back when there wasn't even a hint of digital) I was the one taking all the pictures. But, over the past few years she's gotten quite good. We've bought her some pretty decent camera equipment and lenses and she's doing well with it.:bow:

A 109 in front of it would have made that a "poster shot" :hot:.
In response to that she said that it would have taken me too long to "primp it up" for the shot. By the time I got done the shot would have been long gone.

Trouble is, she's probably right.

:agree: What camera did she use for that shot and was it edited to make the colors "pop" more?
She used a Pentax istDS for this one (her "little" camera). There was no color editing whatsoever. All she did was lighten it slightly.

It's actually 5 photos that have been stitched together. It would be hard to get such a panoramic shot otherwise (at least without some very special equipment).

She also has a Pentax K10D (the "big" camera). Her pride and joy lens is a Sigma 50-500 zoom that is a pretty amazing (and heavy) piece of glass. She is quite into nature photography and has taken some very good photos. She also works as a lighting assistant for her sister who is a portrait/wedding photographer.

Looking at that kind of makes you feel insignificant. It's an awesome picture.
