I woke up to snow on Pikes Peak this morning. It’s a pretty reminder that winter’s on its way to the mountains.
This is one of my first attempts at a long exposure. It’s hard for me to believe I’ve been doing photography for over 5 years… The time has flown!
I originally published this on my running blog. I promise I won’t recycle material from there to here often.
Today Mike’s Camera was holding a demo day at the zoo, which is the starting point of the run, and I snagged a couple of photos of the shrine from various points in the zoo. Walking through the zoo a couple of times today, I realized how challenging this race is actually going to be.
Most of these pictures, I took with a Canon 6D Mk II and an EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens (courtesy of Mike’s Camera).
The road is visible in the lower right corner of the photo.
This last photo was taken at an elevation about where the race starts. The Shrine is the turn-around point. I am definitely going to have to work on my hill running. We’ve driven the route a couple of times, and it’s almost non-stop climb from the zoo to the shrine.
I really liked the way these clouds skimmed the mountains on the west side of Colorado Springs last weekend.
