Hey Alls

I visited Pikes Peak and Colorado for the first time last summer and here my Pikes 8
I talked with a Mountain Bike Guide on one of my stops Up the mountain and she said this was the clearest she's seen the air from the mountain in Months, soo looks like I picked the right day in July to go : )

I added a Tilt Shift Blurr from CS6 for this one, I thought the road would look neat.

thanks a bunch Brian :) and thanks on #1 yeah lucked out I guess on the Stillness, not a perfectly clear reflection but pretty close after this shot I did put on a 9 stop then 3 stop ND filter too see if a longer exposure would look good but in post processing it did'nt , happy this one turned out. and all these pics were taken when the gates opened, did'nt have the early soft light but the cool clouds were a great bonus to incorporate into the compositions.
