A recent photo edit that I did, learning everyday….

So, I do a wide variety of photography at the moment.  Which I love.  But, like all of my life, I never master one.  This morning I watched some videos on some techniques that I already use & I figured some new ways to match them together.  Actually, using them simultaneously.  This may not mean much to you, it's kinda photoshop talk.  But, I was able to get out of a rut, a little bit.  I hope I retain what I have learned...

Carter Lake

Sunset at Carter Lake, Colorado

Wow!  Incredible sunset.  The pictures don't even come close to doing it justice.  I was just overwhelmed, this setting was so powerful.  The water on the lake & the different mountain ranges, varying in depth.  This would have been a great HDR.  The boaters & wakeboarders out there will remember this evening for a long time.  It was stunning.  Maybe the most moving sunset I have ever seen, or at least in recent memory.  My kids were there with me, which made it even more special as I continue trying to show them how beautiful where I grew up was & have it impact them in a way it did/does, me.  As you turn around from this spot where I took this picture, you can see DIA, Loveland area/Berthoud area, as the suns rays shine down on the cities & towns of the Front Range.  Unfortunately, my vehicle & a telephone pole were messing up the shot.  The people who live in on this lake & surrounding area are very lucky to have such amazing views, just about every night & morning.....  unreal.
