    Here are some pictures from the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs.

    The first one hopefully gives you an idea of how massive these upturned slabs of sandstone are. The Pikes Peak mountain pushed up and broke these horizontal layers of rock and then they weathered in place about 70 million years ago.



    Here is a view with a little of the vegetation in the foreground to give it a different perspective.



    Here are some unusual shapes of the weathered sandstone.



    This one is a sign I am getting tired of it and have to include a fence.



    I thought these trees in the park were also quite unusual.

    Love these landscape shots!

    I like this gigantic shapes! The trees have a mild beauty but the vegetation near the stones is somewhat dry.

    I love that shot, with the framed blue sky as if it were part of the wall. It goes well with the blue "A".
    Just a curiosity, Tony: Why are there so many abandoned houses on the island?

    YesNo, I used to live in Boulder and haven't thought of those extraordinary sights in many years. I also forgot the sight of the continental divide. I remember I used to go way up on frighteningly narrow mountain roads to get a clear view of it. Quite a place.

    Colours on all these photos come out with wonderful clarity on my Retina Mac. Just love them.

    Thanks, tonywalt! Your pictures through the window of the abandoned home made me think I like the one where the walls of the home are darkened better than the one showing what is on the inside walls.

    It is dry there, Danik, although we were visiting during a wetter period where we even encountered hail. I don't know what the vegetation is, but the light green color of the low vegetation seems rather delicate to me.

    I haven't seen Boulder, Tyrion Cheddar, but I remember going to some conference in Denver many years ago. We got lost trying to find the convention center downtown even with a GPS which kept losing us, but with modern technology on our phones we seemed to easily get around Colorado City. That city, although about the 40th in size in the US, isn't very hard to figure out. We plan to go out there more often and at least ride the train to the top of Pikes Peak.

    Regarding the colors on a laptop's display, Dreamwoven, for my HP Pavilion computer if I adjust the angle of the screen to my eyes the colors can be made brighter or duller.

    Cute picture! They look a bit like their Brazilian relatives,

    Those parrots look nice. How did you get the uniform blue background?

    Shadows/Highlights on photoshop. Gives it the contrast.

    Just a curiosity, Tony: Why are there so many abandoned houses on the island?

    There is only one abandoned building on the island.(It's actually delayed in construction, graffiti happened) I take pics from it's windows. I am a fan of abandoned building photos, it's one of my fave genres.
