Just Out Shooting -- Garden of the Gods 2

Here's more images from Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs.  It was great to be able to take a little time to be out in nature, and hike around a little bit.  It was a beautiful day.  I took my Nikon D5100 (crop frame sensor) and my 50mm f/1.8 lens, which was effectively a 76mm perspective.  It was a bit tight for trying to capture the sweeping landscapes, so I stitched these panoramas together in Photoshop.  And, yes, the jet and its contrail were composited in from a different shot that same day (in case you were curious).
