Shooting in Cheyenne Canyon

At 6000′ (or more) of elevation, Colorado Springs is closer to a desert than it is to the Pacific Northwest.  But after a good rain, if you visit North Cheyenne Canyon, you can get some shots that are pretty amazing if the weather is right.  By “right,” I mean gloomy, rainy, overcast weather.  These conditions are usually pretty rare here, but every now and then you get lucky.  I shot in Cheyenne Canyon a few weeks ago while leading a workshop on landscape photography; here are some of my shots (Click to see a larger image).  If you go, hope for an overcast day, and bring your polarizing filter!
