    The first time I ran into members of this group was in Colorado this fall - at the True Grit field. Finally have gotten around to processing the images from that day. I'll never forget driving on that dirt road, 20 miles from anywhere, and rounding a bend and seeing 50 or more photographers set up (I think there were at least 3 workshop groups). I am sure among the members here, we probably have a 1000 shots of that field. Here are a couple I have developed so far. These are taken about 30 minutes apart - before sunset. _DSC9721-Pano-Edit-Edit-Edit.jpg

    You nailed it Craig! That is a very popular spot for workshops, and it was really awesome that among that group we were able to connect with each other. It's definitely awesome having you as a part of our community here.

    Again, 2 really nice shots. It's so cool how the light changes there, and also how the clouds can catch color even after it seems like it's too late.

    Did one more - timing between the other two. Sky had a little more color but not the direct lighting the other two received. Had to tone down the clouds as the original was fairly intense.

    Great location - very nicely captured. I particularly like the lighting, colors, and sky of the 2nd one (but would be happy to have shot any of the 3!)
