We spent 15 hours Saturday in Colorado going down Black Bear Trail into Telluride and Imogene Pass from Telluride to Ouray.
I was a Fantastic trip. It rained most of the day, but I got a few good pictures.

I'll take # 2 for the wall, please.
That shot tells such a wonderful story. Well done!

Thank You...

If you look at the 3 waterfalls on the right the middle one is Bridal Veil Falls. Someone built a house on the foundation of the old power plant above it. It's really a Majestic location in my opinion.

Thanks again for the nice reply

I like the first image for its dramatic cloud formations and the "story" of the trail that leads down to either Telluride or Ouray (I assume Telluride, but the town looks like the "Switzerland of America," so I'm not sure). I just wished that you took it outside of the car. The front of your Jeep in the image took away some of its effectiveness....

It's Telluride. Is the orange jeep distracting or my green jeep?

I wanted to get out and set up the tripod but my passengers were going histerical when I stopped, opened the door and grabbed the tripod. Just a bunch of sissy's.

Fun Trip tho..

The green Jeep. Because it stated that you were taking a convenient "snap shot" through the car window, but then I don't blame your passengers from grabbing you... :)

The orange Jeep adds the perilous perspective. It keeps the viewers TENSE!

I don't know...I kinda prefer the original because it adds the "ARE YOU NUTS?! Why aren't both hands on the wheel?" vibe to it :D

Good shots, Gordon. I had a very similar experience several years ago, Black Bear & Imogene on a day when the rain never let up and was it cold. Wrapping in a wet blanket didn't warm one very much. However, it was a great day despite the weather.

Just a bit of cropping would do the job (that is, if you buy into my own personal preference ;)) rather than photoshopping, especially considering that you'd want to have the orange Jeep less in the center:
