For them not interested in reading, you can see the photos in THIS<<link SmugMug Gallery.  

For a SmugMug slideshow, click HERE<<link. When you click the link, it will open in a new window, and you have two options:
1) Manually scroll through the photos by clicking the “<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos.
2) There’s a PLAY/PAUSE button at the bottom-left of the screen with the transition set at about 5 seconds. Note: clicking the PLAY arrow will run a full-screen slideshow. You can then still use the”<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos (this will pause the slideshow).

If you want the full experience, keep reading.

That coyote was photographed at Little Big Horn — yes, that Little Big Horn — with my Nikon D100 and Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR lens.

Note: while I won’t show all of the images in the body of the post, all of the images are included in the gallery at the end. I don’t know how fast galleries load, and I don’t know how fast your internet is. However, if you just want to see the photos, they are all HERE and they might load faster. Once there, click on any to see them larger.

In October 2008, we loaded up our then-brand-new Tahoe and went on a color tour. I believe it was our first color tour of Colorado. We were both working at the time, so it was basically a long-weekend tour. We drove the Million Dollar Highway, slept one night in Ouray, slept one night somewhere else I don’t remember, and included a drive through the Colorado National Monument.

At the time, I was shooting the Nikon D100. Also, I was using Lightroom 7 and Photoshop 3. I liked the photos I took, but I was never happy with the processing. If you want to compare the original processing to what I’ll show below, you can click HERE for what I could do with the tools available ten years ago. Mind you, the photos don’t suck but my processing tastes have changed. For instance, let me show you the processing for the first photo.



I don’t know if the tools were not that good for correcting color cast (probably the White Balance setting was off) or if I was still ignorant as far as processing photos (most likely true) or if the tools are now much better than they were. Probably a combination of all three, but you can formulate your own opinion. I also don’t know which one is closer to what I actually saw.
