I suppose that, non-technically, these mountains could be included in the Rocky Mountains, but they are actually the Wellsville Mountains, which I've shot before. If you are weary of seeing these mountains, sorry! I can't resist!

My daughter and I were out shooting, and I thought these rocks looked interesting in front of the mountains.

Post Processing: autocolor, then I burned the rocks' highlights a bit. I lightly added a blue gradient to the sky at an angle from the left to create a more true blue and cloned out three houses in the background. The mountains were actually slightly out of focus--just ever so--so I sharpened them twice and the entire photo once. I also boosted saturation of greens and yellows by about 15%.

David,

I was wondering whose picture this was. I thought Colorado (I guess the title threw me for a loop). It's beautiful.

I've been trying to PM a thank you note to you, but there seems to be something funny going on with PMs. So ... thank you so much for the write up earlier today. It was such a beautiful surprise. It means A LOT to me. Thanks!

Absolutely lovely, great DOF. The greens look very oversaturated on my monitor.
