PIC A DAY 052612: Garden of the Gods

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but it has also been quite a while since I’ve been able to get out and actually do something besides sit behind a desk, a slave to the Robot Overlords of the world.

Anyway… This was taken at the Garden of the Gods park in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I didn’t get the chance to walk all of the trails, since A) I wasn’t familiar with the park, B) I’m so far out of shape it isn’t funny, and C) I had two kids under the age of five who like to whine.

Click for giant wallpaper sized image (4872x3032) Yeah, I know, who has a computer screen THAT big?

This image was captured with the Canon 5D Mark II, using the EF17-40mm f/4 lens, at a focal length of 25mm. The f-stop was 10 at an ISO of 100, and an exposure of 1/200 of a sec. The image was then cropped and processed with a curves adjustment in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

About Stephen Schleicher

Stephen Schleicher is one of those guys that has always loved comics but never got into them until really late in life - like high school in the 80s. He just missed the Crisis on Infinite Earths, but has been around for every major crossover since. Stephen knows his way around video and film production having been a director, producer, editor, and motion graphics artist for projects ranging from small promotional pieces for Wachovia all the way up to regional videos for the Division of Emergency Management. As a prolific writer, Stephen began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen also freelances for the Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog. When not writing, Stephen shares his knowledge as a tenured faculty member at Fort Hays State University. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment.
