Reviews, Comments & Other Putdowns for this event (by Ray)

My gear for this shoot was:

    • Camera: Canon 7D
    • Flash: None
    • Lenses: Canon 15mm f/2.8, Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 & Canon 17-40mm f/4

  • Garden of the Gods – Colorado Springs, CO:
    From what I understand, the park was named by a couple of surveyors in the mid 1800’s when they were trying to establish a new city and “stumbled” upon this beautiful place. The entrance to the park is free, as per the wishes of the family who donated the land to Colorado Springs in the early 1900’s. See the plaque on the face of one of the formations in the 4th photo of this gallery…

    Also, the 5th image in the gallery is of Father Andreas Blom, from Sweden, who was kind enough to let me take his photo. Melodi and I walked past him and I had to go back and ask him if it would be okay to snap a few shots with the formations in the background. I thought it was a rather fitting image to take considering the name of the park.

    Melodi and I went there after an early morning alumni soccer game and stayed for about an hour and a half. We would have hung out all day to explore all the park has to offer but we were on a tight schedule that day. Next time we’ll make sure to make a day out of it and get photos from all angles.
